Looking to recreate the birthdays of my childhood in England, my mum (RIP) used to make this same sponge cake with 3oz sugar/3oz SR flour and 3 eggs. It was light and fluffy. She would sandwich with jam, sliced bananas and whipped cream, then make a glace icing of confections suger and lemon on top. She made it seem so easy, so not sure what I did wrong; perhaps I over beat the eggs, or should have used cake flour, or over folded it or cooked for too long, but mine turned dry and tough! Unfortunately I did not realize how bad mine was until we had to cut into my cake with a hacksaw my son's 2nd birthday party, it was alittle bit embarrasing! I will try again until I perfect this.
