Add salt, pepper, mustard powder, lemon juice nad drops of vinegar and start beating with a hand egg beater, If you don't have the beater you can also use a spoon to beat. por the oil dop by drop and beat simultaneously. Do not pour excess oil it will make the mixture to curdle. so beat fro sometime so that the oil in the batter is mixed well and then pour another drop of oil. Repeat this untill you empty the oil to get a nice mayonise sauce. Don't worry if you have curdled the mixture. Repeat the entire step instead of using oil you can use the curled mixture and u need not waste the contents. Refrigerate once done and empty the sauce within two days as we have used raw eggs. I love to have Mayonise along with tomato sauce for cutlets, nuggets and with bread sandwich. It will be extremely delicious

(Check your cake to make sure it is cooked.) latha just like u wen i made sponge cake i wondered why the shortening was missing and i had to do a bit of googling before i used this recipe....this is an interesting read, indeed sponge cakes dont require shortening at all! There are two types of raised cakes: 1) FOAMCakes 2) BUTTER or SHORTENEDCakes FOAMcakes have a high proportion of eggs to flour. They are leavened solely by the air beaten into whole eggs or egg whites. They contain very little, if any, fat and have a spongy texture. The three categories of foam cakes are: i) Those that contain no fat - Angel Food Cakes, Meringues, and Dacquoises. ii) Those where the only fat is from egg yolks - Sponge Cakes, some Biscuits, Roulades iii) Those that contain fat (butter, shortening) plus egg yolks. - Genoises and Chiffons BUTTER or SHORTENED cakes contain fat (butter, margarine, shortening) and rely on

a chemical leavener (baking powder, baking soda) for their rise. They are flavorful, and have a good texture and volume. The American-style butter cake evolved from the English pound cake recipe of 1 pound of flour, 1 pound of sugar, 1 pound of butter, and 1 pound of eggs. The French called the pound cake "quatre-quarts" which translates to four-quarters, meaning 1/4 of the recipe is flour, 1/4 sugar, 1/4 butter and 1/4 eggs. The first pound cakes had no artificial leavener and volume was obtained through the mixing (aeration) of the batter. so sidrasmom i believe the problem is aeration, , and i feel the eggs used are way less! You’ve probably heard it before. Maybe you’ve said it to yourself about sponge cakes: “My cake didn’t rise a bit. It was one big gooey mess. Dense and tasteless. It rose in the oven only to fall flat as soon as I took it out. I’ll never bake another sponge cake again, never ever!” Sounds familiar? It definitely does to me. These were the cries of my heart at one point in my life. You see, for a very long time, I failed at making sponge cakes. They just weren’t right. Not like the sponge cake of my childhood favorite, Naghil Tortu (Cake “Fairy Tale”) that sold in Baku in Soviet times - soft and fluffy, perfectly and equally tall on all sides. My recipes didn’t give me that. So, I a few years ago I turned to my baking bible, William-Sonoma baking book, for advice. The advice the book gave me was a great one - stop wasting your time on your poorly and unprofessionally written recipes from your ancient notebook and follow the recipe for a perfect class sponge cake written by professionals. Brilliant advice. How did I not think of that before? So I did follow the advice. My sponge cakes have been great ever since. I now can make my own naghil. Classic Sponge Cake Adapted from Essentials of Baking, Williams-Sonoma The original recipe calls for 4 eggs and 3/4 cup each cake flour and sugar. I have increased the amounts of eggs to 5 and of flour and sugar to 1 cup. It yielded a higher cake. Plus, in this way, the recipe is easier to remember. My new sponge cake baking rule: 5-1-1 and the cake is done:) Easy to remember, no? 1 cup cake flour* 5 large eggs, separated, at room temperature 1 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Position a rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Butter the bottom and sides of a 9-inch (23-cm) round cake

pan. Line the bottom with a circle of parchment (baking) paper cut to fit. Butter the paper and dust the bottom and sides of the pan with flour. Shake and tilt to remove the excess flour. Sift the flour onto a sheet of parchment paper or onto a plate. Set aside. In a large, deep bowl, combine the egg yolks with 1/2 cup of the sugar. Using a sturdy wire whisk or a hand mixer, beat vigorously until the mixture is light in color and thick, about 5 minutes. Whisk in the vanilla. Set aside. In a large bowl, using a stand mixer fitted with the whip attachment or a hand mixer, beat the egg whites on medium-high speed until they form soft peaks and have tripled in volume. Slowly pour in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and beat until the whites are stiff and glossy. You should be able to hold the bowl upside down without the whites falling out (Farida: This is a great tip - make sure you try it!). Be careful not to overwhip the whites, or they will be dry. Using a rubber spatula, gently but quickly fold one-third of the beaten egg whites into the yolk-sugar mixture. Fold in one-half of the flour. Fold in the another third of the whites, followed by the remaining flour. Finally, fold in the remaining whites until the batter is smooth. Be careful not to overfold, or the eggs will deflate and the batter will lose its volume. Pour the batter into the cake pan and smoothen the top. Bake until it springs back when lightly touched with a fingertip or a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove the cake from the oven. Immediately run a small, think knife around the inside of the pan to loosen the cake, pressing the knife against the pan to avoid gouging the cake. Place a wire rack on top of the cake and invert them together. Carefully lift off the parchment paper. Turn the cake back over onto the rack and let cool completely. Use the cake immediately, or wrap well and store at room temperature for up to 2 days, or in the freezer for up to 2 weeks. * You can make your own cake flour with only 2 ingredients: allpurpose flour and cornstarch. Measure how much flour you’ll need. In this recipe, it is 1 cup. Take out 2 tablespoons of the flour and put back in your flour bag. Replace the 2 tablespoons of flour that you took out with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Now, stir the flour and the cornstarch

together and sift at least 5 times. This will allow for the cornstarch to mix well with the flour. The more you sift the lighter and fluffier your cake flour and therefore, your cake will be. Your 1 cup cake flour is now ready. sponge cake 125gm sifted flour (maida) 125gm powdered sugar 150 gm butter 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1 tsp baking soda 1 tsp vanilla essence 3 eggs a pinch of salt -sieve maida, BP,BS and salt together. -beat the eggs and vanilla essence together using a blender -beat the butter and add the powdered sugar to it mix everything and blend well. grease the tray and bake..
