  5. Fold in 2 tablespoon of hot water (11/2 tablespoons for the small cake) and the butter.
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin.
  7. Bake in a hot oven at 400°F for 15 minutes.
  8. The cake is ready when it leaves the sides of the tin and is springy to touch.
  9. Take out from the oven and leave for 1 minute.Invert the tin over a rack and tap sharply to remove.

Tips
  1. VARIATION : CHOCOLATE SPONGE
  2. Proceed as for basic vanilla sponge but reduce the self-raising flour quantity by 15 grams and use instead 15 grams and use instead 15 grams cocoa.
