Gluten Free Sponge Cake

This cake is very close to chiffon cake in its texture and taste. Corn flour gives that lightness to the cake and since it is gluten free, the structure of the cake is absolutely light and delicate. My kids had no clue about this cake being different from the regular flour cakes as they enjoyed eating it as much as the sponge cake made from all purpose flour. Just follow this recipe to the ‘T’ and enjoy this beauty 🙂
