Glorious Sponge Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
i was a little scared making this recipe at first since i didn't know what "stiff peaks" and "folding" was, but with a little googling, i decided to try it out since my hubby wanted to eat sponge cake! to those who said that their cake stuck to their pan, this is because your cake was overcooked! I know this for a reason because my oven was being stupid and half of my cake ended up overcooked and the other half perfect. The perfect side came out of the pan easy breezy while the overcooked side took a lot of scraping... I did substitute the lemon flavour with 1 tsp of vanilla and 1/2 tsp of almond extract and baked for only 45 minutes. next time, i'll probably only use vanilla extract since hubby found the almond flavor to be too strong. overall, fantastic recipe, will use again!
