Corn Flour Sponge Cake (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Kaye Worthington. It is from an Australian magazine called The Australian Womens Weekly. When making them, you must remember that Australians use metric measurements e.g. 1 cup = 250 ml, etc. Also, with sponge cakes, eggs should be at room temperature, not straight from the fridge.

Corn flour Sponge
4 eggs
½ cup castor sugar
1 cup corn flour

Lightly grease a deep 23 cm round cake pan. Beat eggs in a bowl with electric mixer for about 7 minutes or until thick and creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition. Sift corn flour three times, then sift corn flour over egg mixture. Gently fold flour into egg mixture. Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan, bake in moderate oven (180c) for about 40 minutes or until cooked when tested.

Turn sponge onto a wire rack to cool. Split cold cake in half, spread halves with cream, jam, or icing. I prefer to spread raspberry jam on the bottom half and then either spread icing or cream and top with strawberries on the top half.

I also think the same, but what is the role of corn flour? The recipe is very dry and was looking like a disaster.

I'm sorry but this cake was the weirdest solid eggy cake I have ever tasted. Maybe it's an acquired taste, but certainly not mine or my poor boyfriend's who spent over an hour making it!

When making this recipe follow the instructions exactly. The eggs must be beaten at least seven minutes and the corn flour must be folded in, not stirred. Do not over stir and do not over cook. Overall it's a sweeter, smoother version of corn bread. Not exactly as fluffy as one might expect a sponge cake to be but yummy nonetheless.

I baked with maize before and half a tea spoon aluminum free, gluten free soda does the trick, it rises and it is kind of light and spongy.

Yep, we really have it good when you think about it. The only treatment for us is eating gluten free. No pills, no chemo, no radiation. And there is plenty for us to eat, especially now with so many gluten-free foods on the market that are tasty. Labeling laws make it easier too. 20 years ago, th...

D3 should be taken every 3-7days not daily. It stays in your body for awhile and is easy to OD with causing nausea and vomiting.

I am only 7 weeks gluten free and it hasn't been that bad. I am a silent celiac so I may be glutening myself without knowing it. However, it hasn't been as bad as I thought. There are a lot of foods I can eat. When I have had to eat out, I bring my own salad. At home, whatever I prepare is gl...

Thank you all for replying. It's good to know that it's not just me. It gives me (and hopefully the other noobs) some comfort to know that it's normal for the ups and downs to happen. I keep trying to tell myself to be patient with it but it's so hard to be able to look down the road further than...

Thank you for your reply. I did make sure to keep eating gluten before getting tested. I'm still unsure whether or not I should ask my doctor to run the rest of the tests in the celiac panel.
