Sponge Cake

It is the first really cold day this October. Time to bake a cake! This is a nice one.

7 ounces white flour
splash of lemon juice
9 ounces of granulated white sugar
5 separated large eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit. Beat egg whites in a large bowl until stiff white peaks appear. Beat egg yolks thoroughly. Add the lemon juice and sugar to the yolks. Beat until mixture is thick and lighter in color. Mix in egg whites gingerly. Add the flour, folding in the same manner. Pour into two buttered and floured nine inch cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for thirty minutes. Spread raspberry jam in the middle of the cake and dust over with powdered sugar.

Perhaps having the oven on will warm us up somewhat!
