Sponge Cake Recipes

Hi Aparna: I have 3 different recipes-one low calorie, one "perfect sponge cake", and one Mom's- can't -fail- spongecake. I'm sending the low calorie one and if you want the others, just email me and I will send them on to you.


Low Calorie Spongecake (350 degrees F)

  • 1/2 cup reconstituted nonfat dry milk
  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking POWDER (not soda)
  • dash of salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp. grated lemon peel
In small saucepan heat milk until bubbles form around edge of pan. Remove from heat, set aside.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sift flour with baking powder, salt, set aside.

In small bowl, beat eggs at high speed until thick and lemon-colored. Gradually add sugar, beating until mixture is smooth and well blended-about 5 minutes.

At low speed, blend in flour mixture just until smooth. Add warm milk and lemon peel, beating just until combined.
Pour batter immediately into an ungreased 9 inch angel food pan. Bake 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Invert pan over neck of botle. Let cool completely.

Can dust with powdered sugar.
