Lemongrass has numerous uses and important health benefits. Lemongrass had a strong flavor and was used as flavoring agent in sponge cake production. The objectives of the study were to: find out if it would be possible to process lemongrass to be used as flavoring agent in cake making, find out if the lemongrass would be accepted by consumers and conduct a sensory evaluation on lemongrass cake. The study employed an experimental research design, and a questionnaire was used to collect data from eighty (80) respondents. Data obtained was analyzed using Statical Package for Service Solution (SPSS). The study found that majority of the respondents had not eaten cakes flavored with lemongrass before. However, respondents accepted cake flavored with lemongrass. Majority of the respondents affirmed that they would patronize cake made with lemongrass.
