Lemon Sponge Cake

I found this in an old Nebraska 4-H cookbook the other day. It's wonderfully moist! I would suggest to maybe put a little more lemon juice than suggested (I LOVE lemon!) or maybe even grate a little lemon peel into it. I made a powdered sugar icing with more lemon juice to drizzle on top. The family really liked this one and I'm definitely going to make it again.
