Molasses Sponge Cake


  • 5 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup cake flour


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2 Beat egg whites to form moist peaks. Gradually beat in 1/4 cup white sugar and salt. Beat until very stiff and shiny.

3 Beat egg yolks and 1/4 cup white sugar together until very light and fluffy. Beat in molasses, grated lemon rind and lemon juice. Stir in cake flour. Fold meringue gently into batter. Pour batter into an ungreased 9 inch tube pan.
