Sponge Cake!

Hello everyone! I’m sorry it’s been a while I have been pretty busy lately but I’m sure I will be back on track soon! So the other day, I made some sponge cake for my class. I had never seen a sponge cake in a bundt pan before but I decided to give it a try!

My class really enjoyed this cake and I think you may as well, so here is the recipe:


Original recipe makes 1 – 9 inch tube cake

6 eggs
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 cup cake flour
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt


Separate the eggs. In a large mixing bowl, beat egg yolks until very thick and lemon colored. Beat in sugar gradually. Add water, lemon extract and lemon rind. Beat in flour.
In another bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Then add cream of tartar and salt. Beat mixture until whites are stiff, but not until they are dry. Fold this whipped mixture into yolk mixture.
Pour batter into an ungreased 9 inch tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for one hour, or until done.

I highly suggest this recipe! It tastes great especially with strawberries!
