Perhaps some of my readers won
dered when the subject of cakes was
trested that sponge cakes did not
follow butter cakes. At the time eggs
were ajtry high and we had hopes that
the prices would sink to normal as
soon as spring came. Well, spring
hss arrived, but we no longer have
hopes of any prices falling in this
year ol terrible costs. Ana we do
indulge in sponge cakes occasionally,
especially in the. kinds of cakes suited
to these H. C. of L. days. A Sponge
cake is expensive when one consid
ers just the nutritive value; but -if you
stop to think that it is a very diges
tible food, so that it is well assimi
lated, and that it makes a most de
sirable dessert at the end of a heavy
meal or is delicious with a very rich
ice cream, for light refreshments, its
expense is somewhat offset by its
Now that the strawberry season is
approaching, the shortcake looms up
before us. The traditional shortcake
is of biscuit dough, but an equally
delicious cake is made with a sponge
cake foundation. If we compare the
two in every respect we find that the
biscuit dough costs about 18 cents and
gives approximately 2,000 calories, or
units of food value, while a sponge
cake (using the cheapest recipe given
below), costs about 22 cents, and
gives only 1,500 calories. But the
sponge cake is far more digestible
and equally attractive in appearance
The old fashioned sponge cake
recipe called for many more eggs
than the average housewife can afford
nowadays, and more than any house
wife ought to afford at present; the
newer recipes lessen the number' of
eggs and add baking powder. The
method of making is the same in all
cases, and the baking is similar. The
Readers are cordially invited to
ask Miss Gross any questions
about household economy upon
which she may possibly give help
ful advice; they are also invited to
give suggestions from their expe
rience that may be helpful to
others meeting the same problems.

more eggs used the finer the grsin

1 c. sugar.
1 c. flour.
Beat the egg yolks till thick and
lemon-colored, add sugar gradually
and continue beating. This first part
of the process should be thoroughly
done. Add lemon juice, then fold in
egg whites, which have been beaten
till stiff with the salt. Be very careful
in folding in the egg whites that ss
few of the cells as possible are
broken. Lastly fold in the sifted flour,
mixing very gently, and do not stir at
all after the last bit of flour has dis
appeared irom view. Bake in an un
greased floured pan. The oven should
be moderate, time forty-five minutes
for a loaf, twanty to twenty-five min
utes for small cakes. This recipe will
make one large loaf or two loaves
the size of ordinary bread tins. A
circular tin with a funnel in the cen
ter is good because it prevents the
possibility of the cake being soggy
in the middle. When the cake is done,
allow it to cool in the pan before re
moving. The pan should be inverted
if possible, but it must be inverted
so the top of the cake does not touch
a solid surtace. 1 he air should cir

Possibilities of Sponge Cake.
Shortcake Sponge cake may be
baked in two or three layers and put
together with any kind of fruit or
jam between. Whipped cream or
.neringue on top makes a fancy des
sert. Individual shortcakes are attrac
tive. Neapolitan Baskets Hollow out in
dividual cakes, fill with fruit and
whipped cream. Make basket handles
of angelica. Garnish with cherries.
Confection Delicieux Slice the top
off of a sponge loaf, carefully remove
the inside, leaving a hollow box. Line
the box with jelly or jam, fill it with
whipped cream; replace the top and
ice with any desired frosting, garnish
ing with nuts or cherries. This cake
should be prepared shortly before
serving, but if filled with charlotte
tusse mixture it may be. made ahead
of time. The whipped cream may be
flavored as desired.
