Sponge cake

a sponge cake

Because it does not need to use standard leavening agents, the air bubbles in whipped egg whites make the cake rise, sponge cake can be made and eaten during Pesach (Passover). So, while there is no religious or symbolic significance to sponge cakes, over time they've become associated with the observance of Pesach in many households.
