 The goodness of a Sponge Cake is hard to beat, that light spongy cake packed with flavor. It is such a nice light dessert & easy to take because you don't have to worry with frosting. Not that you couldn't frost it if you want to but the cake stands well all on its' own! This old fashioned cake deserves a front & center place on the desert table because it has earned it! 

5 Egg Whites Beaten until almost stiff then beat in 1/4 cup granulated sugar & 1/2 teaspoon salt. Beat until stiff & glossy.
Now beat 5 egg yolks & 1/4 cup sugar until thick & a creamy yellow. Beat in 1/2 Cup Molasses, & beat in 2 Teaspoons of Vanilla.  To this mixture stir in by hand 3/4 Cup minus 1 TBS flour, see note at the bottom. Stir in gently but well. NOW fold those egg whites into the flour mixture very gently! Combine well but GENTLY! Spoon into a 9 inch tube pan. DO NOT GREASE THE PAN! Bake 350 degrees about 45 minutes but check at 35  because oven vary!  Let cool & then dust with powdered sugar! SWEET SPONGE CAKE OH BOY!
NOTE: I sometimes add spices with the flour. 1 tsp. cinnamon & a dash each of cloves, ginger & nutmeg or just use 1 & 1/2 teaspoon of Allspice! It all depends on my mood!
