Great recipe, just like my grandmother's. In reading some of the reviews, I noticed some folks wondered about the amount of flour. Not sure why the cake fell apart for one reviewer, but the flour amount is correct. I'm a pastry chef, and can say that the graham takes the place of flour, both providing gluten and tenderizing. The whites must be prepped as instructed, because they provide structure and lift to the cake. If they're not properly whipped and carefully folded in, the result will be a dense cake with the wrong texture. The yolks and all the sugar also tenderize, so you've got to really adhere to the recipe.
