One of the most basic cake recipes is vanilla sponge cake. This cake is really simple to create and just requires common household ingredients. The process of beating eggs and butter together is the key to a soft, spongy cake.
The amount of air introduced during the whisking step has a significant impact on the increase. With a spatula, carefully fold the flour into the airy, light combination of butter, eggs, and sugar.
