Because they can be made using matzoh cake meal instead of flour, sponge cakes have long been favorite Passover desserts. This recipe, which is brought to us by senior producer Lisa Wagner, was first prepared by Lisa's grandmother Rea.

    At home we really appreciate sponge cakes. I havent tested one like this before. The one I know of is a portuguese recipe very easy to prepare and with very common ingredients (just eggs, sugar, flour and baking powder). You can check such recipe on the link below. I will try Martha's one and compare :)))) Kind regards, Natalia.

    Matzo cake meal can be found in the passover section of the supermarket. It is not the same as regular cake flour because matzo cake meal can only be used for Passover desserts. Maybe you can try this recipe with cake flour if you don't celebrate Passover.

    Is Matzo cake meal the same as Cake meal? I went to the store and could only find Cake Meal made with whole wheat. It did not say made with Matzo. Help! The cake looks delicious and wold love to try it. Being a member of Weight Watchers it is very Weight Watcher friendly.

    Matzo cake meal is used during the holiday of Passover, because regular flour is not used during Passover. Hope this ansers your question.
