This cake gets it's name from the original recipe I was given years ago:
2 eggs, 4 oz butter, 6 oz sugar, 8 oz flour and 1/2 cup liquid
It's a really versatile recipe with many variations:
Add 2 tsp vanilla for vanilla cake
Use lemon or orange juice for a citrus cake (you can add 2 tblsp poppyseeds if you like)
Add some coconut for added flavour
Add 2 tblsp cocoa for a chocolate cake
