  • My third attempt at this

    My third attempt at this (first a failure, second okay) was another disaster. I think the issue is over mixing at the end (four minutes of mixing). Once the sugar mixture had cooled to 37 degrees, adding the flour and eggs and combining on speed 4 for no more than 10 seconds, scraping down then another 5 seconds on speed 4 yeilded much better results for me.

  • Great cake, thank you for the

    Great cake, thank you for the recipe. I did have some trouble with this on my first attempt in my cranky old fan-forced oven. The second attempt was much better, I baked it at 160 for 45 minutes. Next time I will try 50 minutes. Overall the cake is light and fluffy, ideal for a children's party. I used the buttercream icing from the EDC for it and the quantity was perfect.
