Sponge Cake, Citrus II (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Family recipe
Yield: 1 large tube cake

12 eggs, separated
2-2/3 cups sugar
1 cup potato starch
1 cup matzo cake meal
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup orange juice

Pre-heat oven to 325°F.

In large bowl, beat together the egg yolks and sugar.

Mix together the potato starch, cake meal, and salt and add by thirds. alternating with the juice. Set aside.

Beat egg whites until stiff. Mix about a cup of the whites into the yolk mixture and then carefully fold in the rest. Pour into a very large tube cake pan with removable bottom. (I use a square one.)

Bake until it tests clean, about 1 hour. Invert over a soda bottle to cool before removing from pan. Store covered.

Poster's Notes:
This is the cake I have been making for Passover ever since I was a child. I still love it.
