Fresh Fruit Sponge Cake


1¼ cup Butter
4 Eggs
¾ cup Castor sugar
¼ tsp Salt
11/3 cup Plain flour, sifted
1 tsp Baking powder
2 cup Cut fruit (pineapple/kiwi/
3 tbsp Sugar
6 tbsp Water
1 cup Cream
½ cup Icing sugar
Butter, for greasing


Whisk the butter and sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Mix in the eggs one at a time. Add sifted flour, salt and baking powder carefully with a wooden spoon. Grease the base of an 8″ soufflé mould. Pour in the mixture. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 5- 6 minutes. Leave the cake to stand for 10 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack and leave to cool completely. Put the sugar and water in a bowl. Microwave on HIGH for 3 minutes or until the sugar melts and you obtain a thin syrup. When cool, pour onto the sponge. Whip the cream and the icing sugar until soft peaks form. Spoon on top of the cake. Decorate with fresh fruit on top. Serve.

Tip: Add an extra 2 tbsp (approx.) of milk as the batter should be thinner than the ordinary batter. It should be of a pouring consistency.
