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.
I made this cake with the last of the summer strawberries and it is DIVINE! It is perfect for any event you might have. The flavor is just outstanding ~ I can't say enough good things about this cake. Thanks for posting a keeper! Made for PAC Fall 2008.
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
Made for PAC Spring 08 LOVED LOVED LOVED!! My family just RAVED about this one. It took a bit of time and effort but was really worth the wait! It tastes similar to strawberry short cake. I loved the extracts in the cake. I'm really not a huge angle food cake fan but this was really delicious. The cool whip frosting is a bit messy but DH said it's a must! I tried the floss thing and that didn't work because the cake is so spongy. A bread knife worked perfect. Thanks so much will be making again for sure!
Made this cake for my grandtwins 1st birthday party and wow - what a great cake - everyone loved it, including the babies. Thank you for posting Maggie!
I loved this cake! It tasted exactly like I thought and hoped it would. I would make this and eat it all summer long if I could (and there weren't any calories!). Be sure to use fresh strawberries - fresh picked from a farm are best.
An OUTSTANDING cake & so full of flavor! Served it with a side scoop of strawberry-swirled vanilla ice cream & a VERY SMALL drizzle of chocolate syrup! (Chocoholics do that kind of thing, you know!) I, too, enjoyed the blend of flavorings used ~ Well chosen! Thanks for posting such a great recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
