Strawberry Sunshine Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
This is one of my most asked for cakes. I enjoy making it because it doesn't take that many ingredients and isn't that time consuming. Some suggestions for those of you that this cake did not work for:1. Ensure that there are no egg yolks in your whites, or they won't whip to the appropriate consistency. Also, only whip the eggs whites to medium peaks, so you have a safe guard during the folding in process. If you over whip them they will fall, and your cake won't rise, and will be tough.2. Do NOT open the oven during baking, or walk heavy in the kitchen. This is an aerated cake. It rises because of the air incorporated into it. If you are constantly opening and closing the oven the temperature changes and causes the are to leak out. If you are stomping around, it will fall due to vibrations.3. As soon as it comes out of the oven, turn the pan over onto a plate. This will allow it to stay upright, as well as, come out of the pan easier. You have to go around it with a knife, but it should pull away from the pan easily.I hope those tips help and you enjoy making this cake as much as I do!
So frustrating! This was a birthday cake for a fellow worker. Followed recipe exactly and not only did the cake not rise, but it stuck to the pan. I had to use a spatula to dig the cake out.I question that the pan is not greased or sprayed. Open to suggestions. Would like to try again, but would hate to waste another set of ingredients.
Epic fail! Cake sunk after cooling.
This cake brings together one of my all time favorite combo of flavors: vanilla, lemon, and almond extract. Deliciously light and refreshing! I used a buttercream frosting instead of the whipped topping with the same combination of extracts added in.
I made this recipe every time I made a sponge cake, and loved it. WELL... I lost the recipe, and tried all sorts of other sponge cake recipes, but never liked them. I decided to search for the recipe on tasteofhome.com, and found it. Can't wait to make it again!!
