Home Made Trifle Sponges..

I made these trifle sponges yesterday ready for a trifle I was making today. I like to buy shop bought ones when I am in a hurry and make my own when I have more time. We love trifles, so it is good to mix them up a bit. I mostly make them up around Christmas, R=Easter and birthdays. Just like my Grandma use too. Passing on a family tradition.

Trouble is they were so yummy, me and the children ended up eating most of them. I now have to make them up again! Ha!! No worries, they are quick and easy to make.

Make 12 pieces

Home Made Trifle Sponges:

  • 2 Medium eggs
  • 75g Caster sugar
  • 75g Self raising flour
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extracts
  • 4-5 Tablespoons strawberry conserve
  • Sprinkle with caster sugar

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200c fan.
  2. Grease and line a swiss roll tin.
  3. In a bowl whisk eggs, caster sugar, self-raising flour and vanilla extracts together until thick and creamy.
  4. Pop the mixture into greased tin and move tin around to make the mixture even.
  5. Bake for around 8-10 minutes.Until nice and light brown.
  6. Place some grease proof paper out and sprinkle the caster sugar on it. 
  7. Take your cake from the oven and transfer upside down from tin onto the sugar paper.
  8. Remove the grease proof paper.
  9. Spread around 4-5 tablespoons of strawberry conserve allover the cake.
  10. Roll the cake longways, until all cake is rolled up and you have a long swiss roll.
  11. Cut whilst warm into slices.
  12. Leave to cool.

Now I am off to make some more!!
