Not my grandmother’s sponge cake, but someone’s.

3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs, separated
3/4 cup AP or cake flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 375°
Add sugar to the yolks and beet until smooth and lighter in color
Sift flour and cornstarch together, and add to the sugar-yolk mixture
Beat eggs whites until stiff peaks
Gently fold everything together, including vanilla and a pinch of salt
Pour into a greased loaf pan
Bake for 30 minutes, or until the top is very light brown
Let cool in the pan

#nofilter required when smoke from the #thomasfire envelopes the area. Wonderful canoe ride on #morrobay not Mars. Tx @akayakshack for the rental. Look forward to next time. #audreycancook Finally, only one sleeve to go on this project. I'm grateful that #noroyarn is sturdy, since I've #frogged the body of this sweater twice and the first sleeve three time. Can I say #homestretch now? #knittersofinstagram #knitting #audreycancook Sometimes a #toastedmarshmallow over an open flame is the only thing to satisfy. #audreycancook There are just never enough #teddybears. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #audreycancook Once a year I get to use my #enamal platter. Perfect for a #smallbatch Thanksgiving #audreycancook #persimmons are plentiful this time of year. 'What to do with them?' is always the question. I'm considering apple & persimmon #handpies a #smallbatch #audreycancook
