Okay, so here's the thing. I made this with my five year old son and for all that know him, he's kind of a spastic. I was worried about the outcome of this cake because first, we lost track of the count of the egg yolks (I THINK we put in eight, but I can't be sure--it was kind of chaotic) and then I didn't have cake flour so I googled what to do to make the AP flour I had work (minus two tablespoons flour). We followed the directions pretty closely EXCEPT we added the milk slowly at the end because.....we'll, like I said, it was chaotic. We taste-tested the batter and even before baking, it was OMG good. Like almost sugary custardy awesomeness. My youngest and I watched the cake bake in the oven via the oven light (food t.v.) and even with our maybe accidental mix up of counting egg yolks and adding the milk last, we still had a beautifully risen cake that baked up just like it was supposed to. Hoo-rah! I don't get all the bad reviews. If my son and I can pull off this cake, you can, too! We haven't had a chance to taste test it yet, but we will after dinner and I'll update my review then. EDITED: This cake turned out dry and crumbled just like cornbread, just like a lot of the reviews stated it would. Darn. I'll try this again and maybe cut back the baking time by five minutes. Baking it for thirty minutes just was too long, maybe. I think it might even be a little too sweet, but the boys liked it so I'll leave the sugar as is. This would be a good base for Pop Cake.
