Wishing you Autumnal Blessings and an abundant harvest.
Edited to add.
I have been asked by a lovely reader for my sponge cake recipe. So here it is
6 oz soft butter
6 oz sugar.
1 tsp vanilla essence
8 oz self raising flour (or 8 oz plain flour and 3 level teaspoons baking powder)
Cream both together until very light and fluffy
Add eggs one at a time and beat well, scraping bottom of bowl each time.
Add vanilla essence
Fold in sieved flour (and bp if using) and mix gently until just combined.
Pour into well greased 7 inch sandwich tins and level with a spatula
Bake for 20 -25 mins at 350 deg (180c or Gas mark 4)
Leave to sit in tin for 5 mins or so, then remove and cool on rack.
