Creamed Sponge Cake

  • Sponge cake
  • Fruit jelly
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 eggs, whipped
  • 2 Tbsps sugar
  • Almond or vanilla extract
  • 1 egg white, whipped
  • Powdered sugar
Cut the top from a stale sponge cake loaf in one piece, half an inch thick. Scoop out and scrape the crumbs from inside the loaf and upper slice, leaving enough to keep the outside firm. Spread a thick layer of fruit jelly on the inside. Heat the milk to a boil. Slowly stir in the cornstarch wet with chilled milk and the cake crumbs rubbed fine. Stir constantly until thick. Remove from the fire. Beat in the whipped eggs and sugar. Make into a smooth batter. Set in boiling water and stir for 5 minutes after the mixture is really hot enough. Turn into a bowl. Flavor with almond or vanilla and let it get cold. Fill the cake with the mixture. Wash all over with whipped egg white. Sift powdered sugar evenly over it until no more will stick to the surface. Let it harden.
