Vintage Tea Party – Mini Sponge Cakes

vintage party
Vintage tea parties are they the new happy hour?

I believe they are, as we are coming out of the pandemic after drinking too much booze at home in lockdown. We now want to meet up with friends and family, nostalgically, which brings back childhood memories.

Tea consumption over the years is up, so why not mix the two, and throw a vintage tea party, so pull out your grandma’s old teapot and put on a wonderful brew with friends and family and bake up some mini sponge cakes that everyone is going to love, and enjoy these mini sponge cakes when you have your next vintage tea party.  

Mini Sponge Cakes

1 1/4 cup self-raising flour
500g cornflour
Icing sugar (to dust)
20g butter, melted
8 fresh raspberries or fresh fruit (to serve)
6 eggs
1 cup caster sugar
2/3 cup thickened cream, whipped
1/4 cup raspberry or strawberry jam

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a heavy baking pan. Sift flours together in a bowl. Sift flour 3 more times. This will help make the sponge fluffy.

Step 2

Beat eggs in a large bowl on medium speed until frothy and combined. Increase speed to high and beat for 10 minutes, steadily adding sugar, until the mixture is pale and has developed in volume.

Step 3

Sift flour over egg mixture. Using a large spoon, gently fold through, having as much volume as possible. Now pour in the melted butter.

Step 4

Put the mixture inside the pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the sides of the pan start to pull away.    Set aside to cool.

Step 5

Using a cutter, create 12 cake rounds from the cake mixture. Between the three layers of cake, cream and jam are spread. Cream and berries can be added on top. Repeat for the subsequent rounds. You can garnish with icing sugar.

You can use any jam type for this recipe. Apricot jam is the one I like best.

You may now get these delicious miniature sponge cakes for your future vintage tea party.
