The recipe works, but I have had better sponge cake. I find this a bit rubbery. Perhaps, though, I whipped the eggs too much?

My husband has a sweet tooth, so he requested a sponge cake a couple days ago. This recipe looked promising, since it had traditional ingredients and straightforward instructions. Well, not only is preparation simple, but the cake is amazing! The recipe suits it's name, because it was so spongey, you could even call it springy. It had enough moisture to be pleasant, but was not so moist as to make it hard to frost. My husband requested that i save this recipe, which is why i just came back to write it down. I feel like this recipe proves one thought I have always had: the best recipes come from church cookbooks!
