A light and fluffy sponge cake.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups white sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour and baking powder. Heat milk in a small saucepan until just boiling, then remove from heat and set aside.
Beat eggs until foamy, then add sugar. Continue beating on medium-high speed until thick and lemon colored. Add vanilla, reduce mixer speed to medium and add hot milk in a steady stream. Quickly beat in flour mixture.
Pour into a 10 inch tube pan. Bake in preheated oven 45 minutes, or until top springs back when lightly tapped.
