This recipe was based on the Key Lime Pie recipe from Dr. Atkins Diet Revolution book. I’ve amended a few ingredients to make this free from any artificial sweeteners. This is not really a “pie” since I’ve omitted any sign of a “crust” and used ramekins instead.
This sponge cake is flavored with a little orange or lemon zest.
A sponge cake without butter or any other fat is the all-purpose Jewish cake, made every week to be eaten for tea or after supper with fruit salad or compote. So many people have told me of their mothers' biscuit tin from which the wonderfully ever-so-light cake (it is called “plava” in Britain) came out, and how you could never stop eating. It is thought that the origin of the cake is the Sephardi “pan d'Espanya.”
Sponge can be refrigerated for one week or frozen for up to three months. Use it to make ciabatta, peasant bread, and olive-filled rolls.

Old faithful! I've used this recipe for years because it's just so easy. It has a nice sweet crust on the top which I know is probably because the recipe calls for too much sugar. I actually like it like that because then I don't have to frost it!:-) So, I thought I'd post it anyway. Adjust sugar according to your taste. To each his own!!

A delicate, moist, light cake from Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book. Good served when still slightly warm. Easy to make lighter, with less butter or combination of Splenda and sugar.
Many Eastern European desserts start with sponge cake and this moist version tops them all. I believe the addition of 2 tablespoons of melted butter to the batter is what does the trick. This can be baked in a 9-inch springform pan and split into three layers, or baked in a 13x9-inch pan and split into two layers. Try this in Russian Apricot Torte Recipe, Croatian Cupavci, or any other torte requiring a no-fail sponge cake. Makes 3 (9-inch) sponge layers or 2 (13x9-inch) layers of Moist Sponge Cake

I had eaten this cake-literally “cake of heaven” many times in the Casa Chalam Balam in Mérida and loved it. In Yucatán it is served at weddings and first communion receptions. I was told that the recipe was kept a secret by the old ladies who made it for the hotel. After many experiments I think this recipe comes as close as possible to the version I like so much. The soaking of the almonds keeps the cake rich and moist; it is sometimes also flavored with anise.

This cake uses ground almonds to replace the wheat flour usually found in cakes. When preparing the almonds, a hand grinder is preferable to a food processor or blender because electric machines bring out the oil in nuts. If a blender or food processor is used, grate only 1/2 cup at a time. Do not pack down when measuring.
If you have some fruit you want to use up, and you don't have all that much time, this recipe is perfect! Especially on a summer day, this is a great dessert after a BBQ. Yumm Yumm! Any combination of fruit works in this versatile treat.
