Blueberry Sponge Cake

My poor mother has been imagining that she has been in the kitchen baking almost every night this week and I finally had time to bake her a cake today. It's one of the saddest thing to watch and listen as she is no longer able to do all the things that we all take for granted. It is so true that medicine can keep one breathing but it can't give one a life.
I pulled out one of her old recipes and took it for a spin. It took me a while to buy the ingredients as it has been over 10-years since the recipe was used. I had substitute some ingredients but overall the cake turned out pretty good. This is a blueberry sponge cake.

Yes, it is. It was a nickname from my days of being a beach bum diver. My mom unfortunately lives in her own reality these days due to her diminished mental capacity.
