Grease and flour two 9 inch layer pans or 9x13 inch oblong. Beat 4 eggs with rotary beater until very light.

Beat in:

Beat in:

Immediately pour into prepared pan. Bake 25-35 minutes for cake; 18-20 minutes for cupcakes. This is wonderful with fresh fruit on top with some Cool Whip. YUM!

First make sure your mixing bowl is very clean, and also the baking pan. Don't stir, fold into the pan. Try not to shake as you put it in the oven. Hope this helps, I make sponge cake all the time. Bonnie

Give it a 1/4 turn every 15 mins. in the oven for more even heating.

My grandmother made a sponge cake and the frosting was butter and then covered with crushed peanuts.
It sounds simple enough, but I do not know if she used salted or unsalted butter. The peanuts I am sure were roasted in the shell. Has anyone heard of this?

If the peanuts were roasted in the shell they would not be salted. However, with everyone using 'salted caramel' flavours, you may want to try the salted ones.
