been recommended it for a sponge cake recipe. i've hired a cake tin but have no idea what quantity to use. apparently i need a high butter conteent to stop it sticking to the ridges and nigella has one that'd be good. it's a mickey mouse shaped one!

Buttermilk Birthday Cake

Recipe By :Nigella Lawson

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup buttermilk -- PLUS:
2 tablespoons buttermilk -- (or 1/3 cup plain yogurt
mixed with 1/2 cup low-fat milk.)
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup soft butter -- unsalted
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs

1 9-inch square cake pan or 2 8- or 9-inch round cake pans, lined with parchment or wax paper and greased

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together into a bowl and set aside. Pour the buttermilk (or yogurt and milk) into a measuring cup and stir in the vanilla. Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Reduce the speed if using the mixer and add the eggs one at a time, beating for 30 seconds between additions. Add alternating increments of the flour mixture and the vanilla-buttermilk, blending well after each addition; this should take 3-5 minutes. Pour into the prepared pan or pans, and bake for about 40 minutes (30 if using the layer cake pans) until the cake is beginning to shrink away from the sides and a cake tester comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes before unmolding to let cool completely.
