      WOW, this is THE sponge cake recipe I have been looking for, and I've tried lots. Such an easy recipe too. I filled it with whipped cream and strawberry jam (as suggested, I use fresh chopped strawberries as well when they're in season), and simply dusted with icing sugar. It was better (more moist) the following day and even better the day after! So in the future I will certainly make the cakes a day or two before decorating. Thank you for sharing.

      This sponge is the best one that I have ever made. Geat recipe and suitable for a gluten-free diet too (provided the cornflour/cornstarch and custard powder are both gluten-free).I have to say that I have always been hopeless when it comes to baking a sponge.....I'm really glad that I tried this one :) Thanks for a great sponge recipe busyozmum.
