Help with butterless sponge cake

Morning all, long time no post for me

I'm looking for help with a butterless sponge cake if any bakers here have one. Have tried one from Youtube but it flopped the minute I took it out of the oven. I'm well able to make queen cakes with butter, flour and eggs but would love to master a butterless sponge.

Thanks in advance,

T x

What about an angel food cake?

Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

This is a good, rather long, video on the subject of American/no fat sponge cake.

I grew up with these Chiffon cakes that contain oil instead of butter. We always made orange or lemon with a sharp tangy drizzle made from zest, juice and confectioners sugar.
