Caramel Sponge Pie
November 27, 2018

Was surprised to find this recipe here since I grew up thinking it was a family secret. This turned out like the recipe I remember from my childhood - with a lovely creamy caramel middle and a spongy top layer. I made as written but found the directions needed a bit more detail. Definitely need to thoroughly combine the egg yolks, brown sugar, flour, and butter before adding the milk. Otherwise the butter clumps from the cold milk and won’t combine. This happened to me and I had to dump it and start again. Also, for my egg whites, I added a pinch of salt to stablize after they started getting foamy and then whipped to firm peaks before folding them in. The rest of the directions worked well for me and it was delicious!
