Great recipe! So easy. I never made a sponge cake before. I added some lemon zest to the batter and filled it with Mean Chef's lemon curd. Some whipped cream on top and everyone loved it.

This was a really east cake to bake and brilliant to do with my three year old. The reason I have marked it down was because it tasted so bland. It really needs a good slug of vanilla to give it a boost. thanks for posting though as I will adapt it.

The taste of this cake is 10+ stars, however I think it may be misnamed as the texture was nothing like a sponge cake, it was much more dense. I checked my brand new baking powder and it is good until 2012. My husband was wild about the taste. I filled it with seedless strawberry jam and topped it with superfine sugar. One major isappointment was that the cakes sunk in the middle even though they were done. I will try this again, perhaps in 7 inch tins.

This turned out pretty well despite me using the wrong type of sugar and my two year old son "helping" me. It was so simple to make too which is a major bonus when you have an enthusiastic toddler chef who doesn't want to wait long. Thanks!

I don't know if maybe I did something wrong, but this was pretty bad. It came out with the texture of cornbread.

This sponge was a 3 star for taste but a 4 star for ease of preparation. I made it with home-made strawberry jam in the middle and whipped sweetened cream on top. I just felt it was a little too dense compared to the traditional airy sponges made with beaten egg whites.
