I read dozens of reviews and couldn't wait to bake this for my husband's birthday. What a mess I seem to have made of it. Beating to peak took forever and I have an quality beater. Then folding in took too long and I think I lost my air. Then for some reason at 35 minutes when the smoke took over, I took out a very burnt and short heavy cake out. I tried to save it by cutting off everything and still the middle remaining was not light and fluffy. I admit I'm not a baker but I did follow recipie to the letter. Maybe the folding in was done incorrectly? Anyway, I'm just back from the store now with a store bought - wishing I could enjoy the great cake everyone has commented on. Like you site and enjoy all the comments and tips. First time user. My husband is still laughing and I know when all the guests arrive later he'll be telling them of Bonnie's cake.
Two stars only because for me it was a disaster.
