When preparing to enter a baking contest many years ago, I kept fine-tuning this recipe until it was just right. My determination paid off...I was first runner-up! Chocolate frosting enhances the maple-nut flavor of the cake.—Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
This cake recipe was given to me by my sister-in-law many years ago. It's deliciously light in texture, compatible with any meal and makes a beautiful presentation for special occasions.

I've served this sponge cake at church dinners, reunions and other occasions for 40 years. It's always on the table when any of our four children, three granddaughters and great-granddaughter visit our log home in the Georgia mountains.
