Feather Sponge Cake (Amy's Grandma's)

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Oolala

This is my friend Amy's Grandma K's recipe from 1990. This recipe has lemon extract but some lemon zest can be used as well (my Grandma used the zest) but I don't have her recipe.

I have to admit this was really good. So much better than buying. This is not going to last long.
