Kraft Kitchens Tips

Cooking Know-How
Sponge cakes are often turned upside-down to cool so that the air pockets do not collapse during cooling. Place tube pan upside-down on its feet or on a wire rack; let stand 30 min. or until cake is completely cooled. Turn upright. Run thin knife or spatula around tube and outside edge of pan to loosen cake. Remove cake from pan.
Passover Celebrations
To prepare this recipe for Passover, select food products that are kosher for Passover as needed. Consult with your rabbi if you have any questions.
