This is my very favorite vanilla sponge cake recipe that I had gotten from a family friend years ago. It is a very easy recipe, and perfect for everyday baking. I use this as a base for so many different cakes. It is light, fluffy, and spongy. I will tag this cake in many other recipes for a start to other cakes.

Lately, all my cakes have been gluten-free and my go-to flour is Bob’s Red Mill – 1-to-1 . After many trials and tribulations, this is the one that has consistently worked best for me. The creativity of the cake depends on your personal choice and mood. I love getting creative with fresh flowers, fruits, chocolate flakes, fresh cream, cool whip, and edible bling.
