Hot Water Sponge Cake!!!

This is a recipe from a Betty Crocker cook book, dated 1961. I am baking this particular recipe tonight. for Mothers Day. ❤


1 1/4 cups of Gold Medal Flour (or any kind of flour)

1 1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder

1/2 Tsp. Salt

3 Eggs (1/2 to 2/3 Cup)

3/4 Cup Sugar (White)

1/3 Cup Hot Water

1 Tsp. Vanilla Flavoring

1/2 Tsp. Lemon Flavoring.

Heat oven to 350 Degs F. Grease & flour a pan (I used Pam baking spray with flour). Blend flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. Beat eggs in small mixer bowl until very thick and lemon colored. Pour beaten eggs into large mixer bowl and beat sugar in gradually. Blend in water and flavorings slowly, on low speed. Quickly blend in the dry ingredients; pour into pan and bake for 25-30 Mins. Cool.

    • I was surprised about that as well …but nope…no butter called for .I didn’t use frosting but it still came out very good. With the Pam for Baking (with the flour) it doesn’t stick..which is always a plus. 🙂
