    Theresa P's Note:

    Ever wonder what to do with all those left-over egg yolks from baking an angel food cake? This is what my grandmother did with hers! A luscious, eggy sponge cake. You can frost it or not, your choice!

      This cake was just as the other chefs stated. Something was missing for sure.A waste of 10 egg yolks .Would not come out of my "ungreased pan". Had to cut it out in pieces. It was a true sponge cake though as it sprung back upon the first bite. Bad after-taste, threw it out.

      I also made this cake with the left-over egg yolk from making an angel food cake. Looked good until about 20 minutes into the baking process. Cake rose nicely then fell. Did you leave something out of the recipe?

      I had made a cake over the weekend that needed only whites and I wasn't sure what I was going to do with the yolks. loved the recipe! What a great idea for the egg yolks. Nice hint of lemon.
