Butter Sponge Cake

Sunday at church we are having our monthly potluck.  I made an Angel Food Cake (will post that later) so what to do with all of those egg yolks...

Butter Sponge Cake with Creamy Pineapple Frosting.

Ready to be frosted!

This recipe made two loaf pans. I love old dishes, this plate was my moms.

Ready for tasting...just a corner.
