Lemon Sponge Cake (5 ingredients)

I have more than half a dozen of lemons sitting in the fridge so i thought, why not make something lemoney? I found this recipe on YouTube and realised that it uses quite a lot of lemon juice and... you know the rest of the story. If you're a fan of anything citrusy, THIS IS FOR YOU~ 

Also, this only uses one lemon (that is quite a lot for a cake tbh) which leaves me with about a dozen lemons left so stay tuned for more desserts involving lemon/lemons! Thank you for your support 😘

Level: intermediate

  • 4 egg whites
  • 120g sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 120g flour
  • 30ml (30g) oil
  • 40-50ml (40-50g) lemon juice (depending on how lemony you want your cake)
  • 1 tbs lemon zest
  • A pinch of salt (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 150.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the oil, lemon juice and lemon zest. Set aside. 
  3. In two other bowls, separate the eggs and with an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until foamy. Add in the sugar in 2 parts while continue beating until stiff peaks form. 
  4. Gently fold in the yolks. 
  5. Sift in the flour and fold until combined.
  6. Add in the lemon mixture and continue to fold until smooth and well combined. 
  7. Pour the mixture into a cake tin of your choice. (I used a square 8 inch baking tin) 
  8. Bake at 150 for 30minutes and turn up the temperature to 170 and continue to bake for another 5 minutes.
