Glutenfree Vanilla Sponge with a Tropical Fruit Sauce

All rights to images reserved  copyrights Alicia Lewis @ KitchenTakeovers
Here is the vanilla sponge I made using the mix from Delicious Alchemy. I have made a delicious fresh mango and passion fruit topping for this and it was divine. 

This and the brownies received many positive feedback, and a few requests have been made for occasion cakes. But, that's another post for another time! as I have mentioned before, in my write up about these mixes, they are amazing and have really good texture and are delightful to work with. They are very forgiving when it comes to handling. 

I more or less followed the instructions on the pack. Used coconut water instead of water and some extra vanilla paste. The rest is history, as they say when it came to the fresh fruit sauce. I just went with what I had, and truth be told that lonely passion fruit had seen better days it was so wrinkled.

Crack the eggs in a large clean bowl, add the soy butter and whisk with an electric hand whisk. It will look a bit curdled but don't worry.

Add the sponge mix to the egg and butter and whisk well. Slowly add the vanilla paste and coconut water, with the mixer running on low speed. Till you have a uniformed smooth paste.

Get your pre-lined cake tin or tins and spoon in the mixture leaving a good 1-2 inches clear of the top. Use the back of a wet spoon to smooth the tops and gently tap the tin on a table to get it even.

Bake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes. Check after 25 minutes using a clean tooth pick. If it comes out clean, it's done if not return the cake to the oven for a further 5-8 minutes. 

#Top tip: baking times will vary depending depth of cake tin used. The round tins baked to 25 minutes, the rectangular tin was closer to 40 minutes#

Put the mixture in the fridge to chill for a bit, drizzle on the cooled cake just before serving. Or poke small holes in the top of the cake, set the cake in a shallow dish and pour the mango sauce over the cake whilst it is still warm. 

Leave it to settle into the holes a day or so before serving.

Done!
