    While this recipe was super easy to make, I'm afraid I was disappointed with the results. I found the cake way too sweet, and more like the consistency of angel food cake, in that it was sticky (not spongy).

    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!

    I just got my cake out of the oven. Not only is this recipe super easy, it's also super delicious. You could replace the vanilla extract with whatever you wanted and it would still be good. I'm planning on using it for strawberry shortcake for dessert tonight.<br/><br/>I'll be using this one again. :)
