Today afternoon I attended a baking class where we baked with summer fruits like plums, cherries and mangoes. We learnt how to make lemon curd and plum preserve apart from interesting desserts like Mango Trifle cake, Cherry Clafoutis, and also a scottish shortbread. What stuck with me was a simple Sponge cake that was made to make the Mango Trifle cake. It was delicious, soft and airy and completely oil/butter free. Till I saw and ate it (a huge portion), I couldn't believe that there could be a Sponge cake so delicate and delicious and that too, without butter. So, I thought why not begin this blog with this amazing find.
