Gluten-free Sponge Cake

by Michelle Goldberg on behalf of JewishBoston.com / March 29, 2011

Gluten-free and Passover-friendly. I know what you're thinking. But this sponge cake is one of our family favorites! We bake it not just for my Aunt who can't eat gluten, but for everyone at our seder, and for our friends and family throughout the week. It may take some practice to get the desired spongy effect, but the outcome is certainly worth the effort!
