    *Maggie*'s Note:

    I got this recipe out of a Taste of Home book last summer and I love this recipe. I made it for a BBQ and my daughter requested it as a birthday cake. I've also used strawberries and blueberries for 4th of July celebration. The recipe recommends slicing the cake with a serrated knife. To split the cake into three layers I use dental floss - Makes a nice clean cut.

      Being one of those people born with about half an ounce of patience, I normally detest making sponge cakes. BUT - this cake is WELL worth it. I am always fascinated when such simple ingredients combine to make something with such spectacular flavor. I may have to invest in a Valium prescription for the patience, but I'll be making this cake all summer long.

      Refrigerate leftovers? What leftovers??? This cake is disappeared and I only had a chance to eat a small piece. I guess I will have to make it again, maybe on a day when nobody is home. I made this recipe as written and wouldn't change a thing. Thanks for posting. Made for PAC, Spring 2008
