Traditional Twelve-Egg Sponge Cake

Recipe shared by Nancy C.

12 eggs, separated
2 cups sugar
Juice and grated rind of one lemon
1/4 cup orange juice
1 cup matzo CAKE meal
1 cup potato starch
3/4 teaspoon salt

Beat the egg yolks until thick and lemon colored, then add the sugar gradually, beating as you add. Continue to beat until the mixture is thick and puffing with air. Add the lemon juice and rind, and orange juice. Mix together the cake meal, potato starch, and salt; fold lightly into the egg yolk mixture. Beat the egg whites until they stand in peaks, but stop beating before they look dry and shiny. Fold into the cake batter. Line bottom of a regular cake pan (about 8" x 14" or 9" x 13") with wax paper; pour in the batter. Bake in a slow oven (325 degrees) for one hour, or until baked through.

Serve topped with powdered sugar or sugared berries.
