PaddlePop Colors Sponge Cake


6 large egg yolks
70g oil
100g freshly squeezed orange juice
95g self raising flour
1/4 tsp salt

6 egg whites
100g sugar
1/4 tsp cream of tartar

a few drops of blue, green, yellow and pink liquid colors


1. Line the bottom an 8″ round pan. Grease the sides for easier unmoulding. Preheat oven to 160C.
2. Sift flour and salt together.
3. Beat egg yolks, oil and orange juice together until combined.
4. Stir in the flour until a smooth batter forms. Divide equally into 4 and add the respective colors. Set aside.
5. Beat egg whites until frothy before adding cream of tartar. Continue beating while gradually adding the sugar. Beat till firm peaks but not stiff. Divide into 4 equal portions. Fold the divided meringue into the yolk batters respectively until evenly mixed.
6. Scoop 2 tablespoons of each batter into prepared pan alternatively on top of each other. Tap lightly after every layer to flatten and remove bubbles. Bake with a water bath at 160C for 80-90 minutes or until cooked. (Time and temperature is indicative only)
7. Remove from oven, wait until cake has pulled away from the sides before inverting on to a smooth non stick pan. Remove paper lining and re-invert on to a rack.
8. Place cake in the oven (do not turn it on) to dry using the remaining heat if the cake is still wet.




  1. Such a happy cake! Love those beautiful colours. I don’t think I can make something like that.

    Hi, is there a substitute for orange juice? My kids are not a fan…

    Beside self raising flour, can I replace with other flour like plain flour or cake flour?
