With one of my ducks now laying an egg a day, I decided it was time to make a duck egg sponge cake. Here's the recipe I used:
- 6 duck eggs. Weigh them unbroken.
- Same weight of self-raising flour, butter and sugar as for eggs.
My confession is that the video only shows part of the story of making the cakes. In the end they turned out to be a bit of a disaster. The cakes sank in the middle because I had made them too thick. A bit of selective editing meant this disaster did not appear on video. However, watch out for the November edition of Self-Sufficient in Suburbia programme. The disaster will be there for all to see.
As you can see from this photo, the cakes have sagged in the middle.
