I have pretty much got all my recipes down pat,that is,except for spongecake!! icon_sad.gif I've tried four different recipes now and it's either to "oily" to dry or won't cook all the way through in the middle.I've tried turning the temp down a notch to let the middle have time to cook and have even tried my own tweaking to some recipes with no luck.I'm so frustrated as i have a cake to make this week and she of course wants lemon spongecake.I hadn't had that one listed yet on my page because i haven't got my recipe right for it...but i told her i'd do it. icon_eek.gif I made one tonight....followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out nice and fluffy....but tasted like crap!It had a flour taste to it.So i tried tweaking it and adding another tsp of vanilla and lemon juice and the second time it came out really dry. icon_cry.gif Please help!Does anyone know what i could be doing wrong?Is there a trick to baking spongecake?Anyone have a recipe i can try?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
