Growing up, my mom baked this cake weekly. Within one day the cake was gone. It is foolproof- looks great & tastes even better. It is delicious plain & can be dressed up with many different icings. Chocolate is always a favorite & lemon icing really goes well with this simple cake. It is very light and airy & also can be frozen.This cake adapts well for Passover-use potato starch instead of flour.

It is a really easy cake to bake. Came out perfectly; it tastes light and delicious. Loved it without any icing or sauce. For a special occasion, I might add a lemon icing which I think will really enhance the cake. I can't wait to try this out for Passover.
