Blowaway Sponge

4 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup cornflour
2 dessertspoons plain flour
1/2 teaspoon cream tartar
1/4 teaspoon carb soda

Method: Beat egg whites and sugar until meringue consistency, then add egg yolks one at a time. Sift all flours together and add to egg mixture. Bake at 220C (425F) for 12 minutes. This mixture makes three sponges in 17cm (7") tins.

Do let me know if it works - it seems like an awful lot of cake from a tiny amount of ingredients. I am hopeless with cakes though.
