Lemon Sponge Cake with Strawberry Syrup

Happy Monday Guys!  I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Today I’ve got a recipe from my Grandma’s recipe box.  I love digging through her recipes and discovering her yummy treasures.  I thought it would be a sweet nostalgic dessert for Mother’s Day weekend and this one was perfect for the blazing hot weekend we had here in So. Cal.

Lemon Sponge Cake with Strawberry Syrup

This sponge cake has a very light lemon flavor.  It’s delicious on it’s own, but I adore lemon an strawberries together.  So I made a strawberry syrup to top it off.

Lemon Sponge Cake with Strawberry Syrup


  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 6 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Step 1
Beat egg yolks until thick and lemon colored. Gradually add the sugar and beat until smooth.
Step 2
Add lemon juice, alternating with flour to the egg yolk mixture. Beat thoroughly.
Step 3
Beat egg whites until almost stiff, then add baking powder and salt. Beat until they will hold a point.
Step 4
Fold the egg white mixture into the egg yolk mixture. Place into an ungreased bundt pan.
Step 5
Bake at 325 for 25-35 minutes.
Step 6
For the strawberry syrup I added 3 cups of frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup of sugar, the juice of 1/2 of a lemon and 1 teaspoon of vanilla ti a saucepan. Heat on medium low until the berries are softened. Let the strawberries cool and then puree in the blender.

Thanks for stopping by friends… have a wonderful week!
