I know, it's a really stupid question (although, as Mr Garrison from South Park says, "there are no stupid questions, only stupid people" :P )
I keep seeing people on here talk about a great recipe they've found for it, but what is the difference to regular sponge cake? Is it baked differently to make it pure white? Is there a different recipe or ingredients?
I'm confused about it! :D
White cake uses only egg whites instead of whole eggs.
and in the 'old days' we used Crisco white vegetable shortening instead of butter along with egg whites only. It produced a really white colored cake.
Huh. Is that all it is? And here was I expecting some major change :D
Out of interest, would I be right in thinking this would be slightly healthier as well? I believe the fat content of an egg is in the yolk, isn't it?
