Sponge cake.

There are many different ways to make Sponge cake and this is just one of them. It is a simple recipe  but does require lots of beating/mixing to begin with and some careful folding to end with.
I have cut the cake in half, spread some jam on the bottom half and put the other half on the top with some whipped cream.
