This is yet another recipe from my dear departed Mother's "new" BH&G Cookbook published in 1937. (I've submitted a couple of others from this treasure.) I've only made it in cast iron so cannot say whether or not another type skillet would work as well. This cake is FABULOUS! That's all I can say!! It is the only cake I've ever made from scratch and I'm still fascinated by the fact that sponge cakes rely solely on the eggs for leavening. Not only is it delicious, but it has a beautiful presentation. LOL! I just asked my DH if he had any comments and he said, "divide equally and share fairly with others"! Thank goodness we don't have any children, the way we act about it!! Sure hope someone else enjoys as well...let me know so I won't think we've gone bonkers :)**
