This is my second time to make this cake. I make it using the modifications of separating the eggs and pre-sifting the cake flour before measuring, as others have mentioned. If you have clear vanilla, I'd recommend using it, as the tablespoon does darken the cake somewhat. I should have greased and floured the pans rather than using baking spray the second time--the cake tends to stick on the bottom, so it didn't come out as nicely as I would have liked. (I may try parchment next time.) Because I used a 13 x 9 x 2 pan, the baking time was longer, but no problem.
We love the cake, although I would rather find a recipe without the gelatin--something about that texture in a cake bothers me, yet until I do, it will remain my go-to recipe for my husband's birthday cake.
