Recipe Spring Sponge Cake with Tangy Curd Filling

A great cake recipe for a light sponge cake, with your choice of fruity curd filling. I topped my cake with a simple yellow icing and a collection of mini chocolate eggs for Easter. But this would make a great cake for the Summer.
Recipe Fruit Curd Cake

170g softened butter
170g sugar 
170g self raising flour
3 medium eggs

A jar of fruit curd
Small carton of double cream (optional)

Recipe Fruit Curd Cake
Line and grease 2 7 inch cake tins. Set oven temperature 180 degrees C or gas 4.

  • Beat the butter and sugar together, until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually add the beaten egg, add a little flour if needed to prevent the eggs and butter from separating. 
  • Add the remaining flour, then carefully fold this into the cake mix. 
  • Split the mixture between two 7 inch round cake tins that are lined and greased with a little butter. Bake for 20 minutes 180 degrees C or gas 4. Bake until lightly golden in colour.
  • Leave to cool in the tins for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
Sandwich the cake with your favourite fruit curd, if you are feeling decadent you can also add fresh cream.

Decorate the top with a sprinkle of icing sugar or simple icing made using water and icing sugar, add a little food colouring to co-ordinate with your curd. Top off with a collection of mini chocolate eggs, or your favourite sweeties or sprinkles.

  1. This looks delicious! I'm not a crazy fan of many fruit preserves but I imagine this would be great with a lemon or zesty orange curd? Will definitely give it a go.

    Happy easter!



  2. OH MY GOSH THIS LOOKS AMAZING! I have added to the #fdbloggers (food bloggers) pinterest board :) I love fruit curd so I'm going to have to give this a go :)

  3. Oh yum! This looks delicious, I have never seen passion fruit curd before! Definitely my type of cake, bit of a difference from the usual chocolate cakes for easter

  4. That sounds and looks quite yummy!! Thanks.
