the best, most moist Passover sponge cake I've ever eaten! Simon, Newton, MA
The cake came out extremely dry. I think that the baking time 1 hour and 10 minutes is way, way too long. 50 minutes THE MOST. Not only it came out dry, it also was burnt on outside, we didn't like it.
Great recipe! I do suggest greasing the pan. The sponge cake stuck to everything (including the parchment paper).
This came out ok. It tasted good, but did not look great. If you are not going to use parchment paper, make sure you lightly grease the pan.
This is this first sponge cake that I have made that has actually come out perfect!!! Great directions, easy to follow, easy to make. Wonderful taste. Best Sponge Cake I've ever had.
I used this recipe the last 2 years and I am back to make it again. It is perfect. Just like my grandmother used to make. I also cut it up to use in other recipes for layers and bottoms, such as cheesecake.
Everyone said this didn't taste like a Passover dessert (meaning it wasn't sawdust). It was truly delicious. The cooking time was right on. The parchment at the bottom of the tube pan worked perfectly. I can't believe I didn't think of this before! I added a little orange extract to the orange juice. After the cake cooled, I cut it in half, pulled off the top half, carefully scooped out a moat into the bottom half, and filled it with lemon curd (easy to make, easier to buy). Then I fairly neatly replaced the scooped out mounds. Next I frosted the inside with a "7-minute icing," replaced the top half, iced all over, and coated it in sweeetened shredded coconut. I put toothpicks in it and covered it with plastic wrap (the toothpicks to prevent the wrap from messing up the frosting). I refrigerated the cake until the next day and pulled it out about an hour before dessert time. Easy to cut and serve. Looks marvelous in its coconut glory!
I made this cake. It turned out great. Very moist. Everyone loved it. I would suggest that you make it clear that "white sugar" means regular granulated sugar, not confectioners' sugar. I shared this recipe on Facebook.
