School Sponge Cake Recipe!

A while ago I saw a video on Facebook of someone making one of the cakes you used to get at school, a simple sponge with icing on top and sprinkles, it looked really good but I never got round to making it and then I couldn't find the page that had the video on so I decided to make my own and it was really simple and took me back to when I was in primary school. I used to love when they would have sponge cake and custard, the pink custard and the chocolate custard was the best! 
Ingredients:
225g butter/spread
225 caster sugar
275g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 eggs
4 tbsp milk

Method:
1. Pre - heat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a square baking tin. 
2. Like my Lemon Drizzle Cake I just put all the ingredients in a bowl, I wouldn't really recommend this unless you're going to use an electric whisk, as it would be impossible to try and mix it all properly with just a wooden spoon. If I don't use an electric whisk, I add the butter and sugar and cream those together and then add the rest of the ingredients. With this recipe I put all the ingredients in a bowl starting with the butter, then the caster sugar, flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, 4 eggs and 4 tablespoons of milk and then whisked until smooth. 
3. Pour into cake tin and bake for around 35 minutes, I usually insert a skewer after this amount of time, if it comes out clean then its done, if not then it needs a bit longer. 
4. Leave to cool in the tin for around 15 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. 
5. Prepare the icing, I used around 150g of icing sugar and added small amounts of water at a time until it was a smooth paste. 
6. Top the cake with the icing and then cover with sprinkles. 

Let me know if you give this recipe a go! The cake is absolutely delicious.
