Light and Airy Sponge Cake

Hey! Wanna make something super yummy and fluffy? Let’s bake an easy sponge cake that’s so light and airy, you’ll feel like you’re biting into a cloud! We’ll mix some eggs with sugar until they’re just right, then gently fold in flour to keep it super light. We’re making two cakes, so there’s enough to share (or not, we won’t judge!). This cake is perfect for snacks, desserts, or anytime you want something sweet. Let’s get baking and create something delicious that everyone will love!


  • 8 fresh eggs
  • 120 grams of granulated sugar (equivalent to 1/2 cup)
  • 100 grams of all-purpose flour (approximately 2/3 cup, divided equally)
  • Butter or parchment paper for lining the pans

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F). Get two baking sheets or pans approximately 35 x 28 cm (14 x 11 inches) and line them with buttered parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, crack in the 8 eggs. Pour in the 120 grams of sugar.
  3. With an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar together on high speed for about 7-8 minutes, or until the mixture is thick, pale, and has tripled in volume. The texture should be creamy and fall off the whisk in ribbons.
  4. Gently sift 50 grams of flour over each of the two containers of the egg mixture. This is to ensure that there are no lumps and the cake remains light.
  5. Carefully fold the flour into the egg mixture in each container. Do this gently to avoid deflating the eggs too much – you want to keep as much air in the batter as possible.
  6. Divide the batter evenly between the two prepared baking sheets, smoothing the tops with a spatula.
  7. Put the baking trays in the already hot oven and cook for 15 minutes, or until the cakes turn a golden color and bounce back when you gently touch them.
  8. After cooking, take the cakes out of the oven and let them cool down in the trays for a little while. Next, move them to a cooling rack to cool down entirely.
  9. These sponge cakes can be enjoyed as they are, or used as the base for layered cakes, rolled with fillings, or even soaked with syrups for an extra moist texture.

Serve your light and airy sponge cake with a dusting of powdered sugar or your favorite frosting. It’s perfect for afternoon tea or as a base for elaborate desserts!
