Sponge Cake

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 3 tsp. cold water
  • 1 cup sugar
Preparation -
Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together. In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks, water and sugar together.
Add the flour mixture and beat at medium speed for about 2 to 3 minutes. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold in the beaten egg whites into the batter.
For pineapple upside-down cake - Slowly pour the sponge cake batter into the pan, over the pineapple, cherries and brown sugar mixture. Bake in a preheated oven at 350º for 40 to 45 minutes or until the cake springs back when pressed lightly in the center. Remove from the oven and let stand for 1 to 2 minutes. Run a knife around the edge, between the sides of the cake and the cake pan. Turn the cake over onto a plate and remove the pan, being careful not to let the hot syrup burn your hands.
