smaller version of the old fashioned pound cake. to lighten it separate eggs and whip egg whites. fold into the rest just before putting in pan. it's a classic, but i still prefer more modern versions.
Not good. Dense and bitter. Followed the recipe, but was disappointed.
Very easy and quick recipe for cake in a pinch. I added about a tsp of vanilla just for flavor. It was a bit heavy though, and when I made 2 8in cakes they were quite thin. Next time I will put the entire batter into a single pan, or double the recipe.
