This turned out great, I am glad I used my instincts and only left it in for 35 minutes, as the top was almost burnt. I am not sure why it needs an hour at 325 degrees, but I have a gas oven maybe mine just baked faster. Anyways, I used this for the cake in my strawberry shortcake, it is very similar to what my grandma use to make and I knew she was with me in spirit as I was making this as it tasted almost as good! I left out the lemon, added 1 tsp vanilla extract and kept everything else the same and actually used cake flour. I still haven't perfected my strawberry shortcake but in time I know I will get it right and I will use this sponge cake recipe in the future. This cake has potential for a lot of different recipes.
