I don't know what happened! I made a double batch so I could make a 2-layer cake. I used cake flour, but I followed the rest of the instructions exactly. I wonder if I mixed each step for too long? I didn't know what "beat eggs until very thick" meant, so I had my stand mixer beating the eggs for about 8 minutes. I also didn't know what "beating well" meant when I added the sugar and vanilla, so I assumed it meant beat for another 5 minutes or so to fully incorporate the sugar. I did the three part addition of the flour, cream, flour, cream, flour as instructed. This process took about 8 more minutes. I baked it in 2 separate round cake pans for 30 minutes, but my cake came out dry and sorta dense :( I had such high hopes for this recipe because the reviews were so positive. I might try this again, but I'll beat each step for a shorter period of time.
