Hi Aunty Yochana,

Optima flour what can i substitute it with? I can't get this flour here in Canada.

Cheers,
Dizzy

Hi Dizzy,

You don't have to use this optima sponge cake. Try my traditional sponge cake recipe which I have already posted in this blog. In the beginning you find it difficult to do but when you catch it, it's a breeze. I think you should try doing the simple sponge without the optima flour since you have difficulty in getting it in Canada. Which part of canada are you in?

Hello Aunty Yochana,

I am located in Edmonton (Western Part of Canada). Our winter is always cold and last a good six months. :(

wow Dizzy,

Canada is very cold and I just hate the cold. I remembered my hols in Seoul. My nose turned to ice and my feet with millions of pins and needles poking at me and for once in my life, I love to visit the toilet. Warmer inside...
