So, I'm usually the type to create my own recipes but when it comes to baking, it's a little harder to just throw stuff together. This recipe I adapted a little from a Glorious Sponge Cake recipe I found on allrecipes.com. I had oranges, so I decided to substitute that for the lemon flavor this recipe had. I also cut the recipe in half because I just wanted a one layer 9 inch sponge cake for a tiramisu, which I will post the recipe for that soon.
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp Orange juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp Orange extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 tsp Orange zest
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 inch round cake pan with butter and flour. Separate eggs, and beat yolks until thickened. Add sugar until incorporated. Add orange juice, vanilla extract, Orange extract and almond extract. Add flour and baking powder.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites to stiff peaks. Add in Orange zest, cream of tartar and salt.
Gently fold egg white mixture to flour mixture.
Pour in prepared pan and bake 40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Varies on oven.
