5 inch sponge cake – baking temp and time

Hi can anyone suggest the correct baking temp and time in the oven for a 5" sponge cake. My tin is 3 inches deep and I am using 100g sugar, SR flour, butter and 2 eggs.
thank you.


Hi jeanhamilton

In my oven, I bake small deep sponge cakes on the middle shelf, at 160 c fan for approximately 40 minutes. As all ovens are different, keep an eye and nose on your bake when baking a recipe for the first time. Jot down the timing for future.

Hope this helps. 😊
