Chinese style sponge cake recipe (not a quilting post)


 This recipe is very popular with my Chinese friends - I am asked to make it for every party or function. In China few people have ovens in there homes - so cakes are usually bought and a special treat. However they often dont like the typical bakers sponges here in Australia as they are too sweet and have the "wrong" texture.

This has become a family favorite.
