Over on her blog , ‘Making stuff‘ Sharon shared a recipe for a wartime sponge and she challenged me to have a go!
Grandma’s fat free sponge contained just eggs, sugar and flour. The eggless sponge called for flour, a little fat, sugar, syrup and a bicarbonate of soda and vinegar mix.
Sharon’s recipe contains only 4 ingredients and here’s the recipe we used:
8 oz self raising flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
4 tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 pint milk
Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda into a large bowl
Gently heat the syrup and milk together in a saucepan
Pour the milk and syrup onto the flour and beat well until smooth
Place the mixture into a 2lb greased loaf tin and bake at 180 for 40-45 minutes until brown
The recipe makes a loaf which can be sliced and served with stewed fruit.
How did it turn out? It would appear that Sharon is a better cook than me!
