“My mother also made this recipe in a long loaf pan which I don't believe they make any more. Fortunately, I have her pan and whenever I make this it sure brings back such happy memories.”

I should of realized this recipe was flawed when the sugar ingredient was only 1 1/2 teaspons. But I still gave it a try and it came out exactly like my expectations. No flavour not even spongy. Maybe there was a typo with the ingredients. If I added more sugar this cake could of probably been saved. But instead it falls flat! EDITORS NOTE: The incorrect sugar amount was due to a technical error on our part. We have fixed the recipe, and apologize for the inconvenience.



This cake is a great tasting, easy cake. I almost didn't make it because of the previous review but saw the editor note and proceeded. My young son helped make it. Also is a great recipe for using milk that is about to go bad ... LOL! Thumbs up!

I made this sponge cake again in muffin pans (using paper muffin cups)... and this really helped solve the problem of it sticking to the pan. I recommend it!
