THE SELF WORTH DIET – Because Low Self Esteem Is Fattening

Grandma Mollie’s Passover Sponge Cake


I finally got some of my Grandma Mollie’s recipes from my Aunt and I am so happy to have this sponge cake recipe.  My Grandma died in the 90’s and was a huge loss.  We lost our matriarch and the best cook in the family!

I’m going to be making a book of her recipes as well as pictures for the family and will post some of them here too.  I hope you all have a lovely Passover.  Chag Sameach.





1 Cup Sugar

12 Eggs

3/4 Cup matzo cake meal

1/4 Cup Potato Starch

Juice from ½ orange and rind

Juice from ½ lemon and rind

1Tbl Oil

10’ Tube Pan (do not grease)

1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips


  1. Separate the eggs
  2. Mix the juices and rinds of the orange and lemon along with oil – cream until foaming.  Then set aside.
  3. Beat the egg whites with the sugar until stiff
