SPONGE CAKE - BAKING OF COLORFUL CAKE IN A SINGLE PAN

TWO COLORED SPONGE CAKES

Sponge cake wrapped in paper is always my kids favourite. They love to have it from Kerala Bakeries. It is better to avoid bakery sweets and snacks these days because of food adulteration. So i always prefer to make those stuffs at home for  the safety of our kids. I highly recommend all my readers to bake a cake at least once in our lifetime. Yes, you can bake cakes even without an oven or on the stovetop, or in a nonstick pan or in a cooker like so.   I had posted THE RECIPE FOR SPONGE CAKE without using an oven a few months back. So kindly please check the recipe of the same on my blog or please click HERE  for the sponge cake recipe without an oven. We all know that sponge cake is a cake based on egg, flour, sugar, butter and sometimes baking powder. But this two colored sponge cake calls for baking powder and I skipped the use of butter also. Kindly please check the detailed video showing how to bake a double coloured sponge cake in a single pan.

INGREDIENTS (1 cup = 250 ml)

Eggs  - 3 nos, at room temperature
Sugar - 1 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 tbsp
Vegetable oil/sunflower oil - half a cup
All purpose flour/ maida - 1.5 cups
Baking powder  - 1 tsp
Salt   - a pinch, optional
Milk - 2 tbsp

For the coloring

Pista essence  - 3 drops
Rose milk essence - 3 drops
(you can also use any food colors instead)

To decorate 

Nutella  - 3 tsp or more


PREPARATION

Please check the below video showing how to make this two coloured cake 



  • First of all line the baking tray (rectangular shape) with butter paper. Then make a partition in the middle of the pan using a silver foil covered with butter paper (pls check the video for more details). Make sure that the partition is in the exact middle portion. Set aside. (you can grease the pan with butter before lining the pan so that it sticks well.)
  • Sieve together All-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well and set aside.
  • Now let's make the batter.  Whisk together eggs and sugar in a bowl using an electric beater until it turns light and airy which is very important. You have to whisk it well until it turns to white in colour. 
  • Then add vanilla essence and veg oil. Again whisk well. 
  • Now add the flour mixture little by little and fold well. (do not use the whisker ).
  • Finally, add milk and again fold. 
  • Now the batter is ready. Divide the batter into two bowls.
  • Add pista essence in one bowl and mix well. To the other bowl, add rose milk essence and mix well.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan without disturbing the partition in between. Tap the pan gently. And then bake it in the preheated oven at 150 degree C for 30 minutes. 
  • When done, remove from oven. Let it cool well. Take the cakes out of the pan. Separate the butter paper and then set aside the two colourful cakes.
  • Now gently cut the top of the cakes (u can use the leftovers for making cake lollipops or for any other dessert recipes).
  • Apply Nutella on one cake and keep the other cake upside down over it. Gently press it, so that it sticks well and looks like a single cake. Trim the sides if required. Let it covered with a foil for few minutes for the perfect slice.
  • Now slice and serve. Yummy and eye-catching cake is ready.
