Hi Hummingbird,
I haven't done that one yet

But I have done the Lemon Cream Sponge on page 116

I didn't follow Sarah's instruction fully. Even with the extender ring on top, I still cooked the cake one at a time. The timing was about just right but the temperature was still a bit too high. Half way through I reduced the heat to 130c

I had an excellent Lemon Cream Sponge cake.

(I am not implying that Sarah's recipe is wrong. This is what works best for my oven)
