Flat sponge

I have followed delia's classic sponge cake recipe and apart from using 1 medium egg and one large(recipe stated 2 large) cooked it in my fan oven on 150c and it didn't rise above 1/2inch. This is a problem I keep having what am I doing wrong?

Flat sponge

Hello bluetit,

Unfortunately there have been a few members who have experienced flatter sponges in their fan ovens.
If you can set your oven your to convention heat when baking I think it would be worth seeing if the result is improved.
Two large eggs (the largest ones from a box of large) will give a better result too.
I have a multifunction oven so I will try a sponge to see how it works when it is set to fan to see if it makes any difference in my oven.

Kind regards
Lindsey
