    A different way to make a light airy sponge. A friend gave me this recipe many years ago when I complained that I could not make sponges!! I hope it works for you!

      I loved this recipe Jen. My favorite cakes are sponge and angel food and your lovely recipe does not disappoint. Wow was it good. Light, fluffy, airy and oh so delish. Did I mention that It was quick and very easy to make. I made this for my coconut/pineapple loving neighbor. The accolades could be heard on the whole street, once she put her eyes that popped out of head back in...hehehe.... Thank you so much for making me a star. Your recipes so rock. Thanks for being a great swap partner, yet again. :) Made for Aussie Swap 40.
