making a conventional sponge could be costly, should organic eggs be used... cos eggs alone could set you back $4-5...
so i attempted a homemade improvised recipe - eggless cake... and it's dead easy!
3 cups self raising flour
1 cup castor sugar
1 cup olive oil
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1/3 cup coloured chocolate chips (optional - i just had left over in the cupboard)
mix everything together and bake in 2 silicone cake moulds (diameter 24 cm)
sandwich the 2 halves together with butter icing (250g butter and icing 1 cup sugar & dash of milk)
the texture of the grain is soft and large, quite aerated...
