I've tried googling this and have seen recipies using loads of oil to soya milk to 6 eggs!!

I have self raising flour, sugar, egg and butter, is this enough to make a sponge cake? and if so what do I do!!

I always use Delia; 6oz each of butter, flour and sugar and 3 eggs. Drop of vanilla extract and a teaspoon of baking powder if you have them but no biggy if not. Everyone comments on my sponge cakes which are the only thing I cook that come out well and with no pointy bits

If you have non standard sized eggs, you can weigh the eggs then add equal weights of sugar, margarine/butter and SR flour.
For a small sponge you use 2 eggs (and approx 4-5 oz flour/sugar/fat) in a 7" tin or 2 7" sandwich tins. The recipe linked to makes a fairly deep large cake.

2 x 8oz tins to make say a victoria sandwhich you would need...

4 eggs
8oz caster sugar
8oz self-raising flour
2 tsp baking powder
8oz butter

Slap everything in one bowl ala Mary Berry stylee and whizz with the electric mixer. Split into the two greased lined tins, bung in the oven for 20 mins or so. Done!
