My mom makes sponge cake at home using no electrical appliances. She uses her hands to beat the sugar, flour, eggs and cooks the cake on a gas stove. Main ingredients used by my mom are flour, sugar, eggs, butter, essence and baking powder. Butter used in the cake is home made. There is no measurement but the cake comes out so tasty and delicious.

In this recipe I have added all the ingredients she has used and additionally I have added cardamom. Please go over the notes at the end of recipe before you start baking cake.

Check with a tooth pick or knife, if it comes out clean the cake is done otherwise bake for some more time.

Take it out from the oven and let it cool in a wire rack.


  • Beat  Butter and sugar for at least 5 – 10 minutes. Starting on low speed then gradually increasing speed.
  • Sieve baking powder and maida/all purpose flour three times.
  • Large metal spoons are used to fold eggs into batter so that eggs do not deflate.
  • Preheat 10 minutes before you place the batter.
  • To test whether the cake has cooked or not just insert a knife, if it comes out clean that means cake is cooked.
  • While folding the flour work quickly but gently.
