This is probably a really weird question but can I make a sponge cake with wholemeal flour and would it still taste good and be like sponge?

Yes you can but the cake will be heavier and taste a little earthier. I always use SR flour for cakes so if you are using wholemeal flour don't forget the baking powder. I would add a couple of tbsp of milk as the wholemeal flour is needs more liquid to help it rise.
My basic recipe is 200g SR flour, 200g butter, 200g sugar, 3 eggs, tspn vanilla essence.For wholemeal flour add 2 tbspn milk and 1tblsp baking powder.
