OLD School Cakes 

So today has been a rainy day… Not much to do, housework is finished and the kids are relaxing… One hour till bedtime and I can make one of my delicious school cakes with the love of my life.

If you want to make an Old School Sponge Cake heres the recipe:

You will need:

200g Butter

200g Self Raising Flour

175g Caster Sugar

3 eggs

Icing Sugar

1-2 Tablespoon(s) Water


  1. Start by mixing the butter and sugar until creamy, then grease your baking tray (Ideally Rectangle) and mix in the flour and eggs.
  2. Pre Heat your oven to 170°c
  3. Place your smooth cake mix in the tray and bake for around 20-30 minutes until golden brown.


When you get your cake out put a skewer through the middle and if it comes out clean the cake is ready, if not it needs a little longer.

You can also lightly press the top of the cake and if it bounces back up its ready!

I hope you enjoy your cakes!

Any feedback would be great 🙂
