Makes 7-8 slices

Ingredients

For the sponge cake:

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup plain flour

3 eggs

1 tsp honey

1 tbsp vanilla essence

For the filling:

2-3 tbsp Nutella spread

For Dusting:

Icing sugar

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC (400ºF) and cover a tray with baking paper or just a bit of Canola oil over the base.
  2. Combine the egg yolks, sugar, and honey then mix well until the batter is of a smooth consistency.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites at a room temperature then add 2 drops of lemon juice for extra flavour (optional). You should keep whisking the mixture until it is foamy and white in texture.
  4. Combine both of the mixtures together, then sift in the flour and lastly add the vanilla extract.
  5. Empty the mixture out onto the tray, and even it out. Bake for just 6 minutes and don’t let it burn!
  6. Remove from the oven, and transfer to a rack so it can quickly cool down. Sprinkle some sugar over it, then cover with cling-wrap and let it cool down completely.
  7. Once it’s cooled down, roll the cake and dust with some icing sugar (or more Nutella) before serving. Yum!
