Easter Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2004
I recently made this cake for my family at Easter. I am not a regular baker and I followed the recipe like it was listed. Much to my surprise, when I took the cake out of the oven it was flat and very heavy. I made the cakes icing and prepared it for the next day. I cut into it and sure enough it was like rubber. My mom looked at the recipe and discovered that there was nothing in the recipe to make the cake rise!!! I realize this is probably a simple error, but it would be nice if someone could have proof read this so that my Easter dessert wasnt a total disaster!! I am very dissappointed!!

This is a "Sunshine Cake" much like an Angel Food Cake. Eggs must be handled very carefully as the perfectly beaten egg whites are what leaven or raise the cake. Cream of tartar is what is added as a "raising agent" in most Angel Food type recipes. When this cake is baked it should have yellow and white alternating areas, like an "Unswirled" marble cake. If you have never made an Angel Food Cake, I would advise you to do some reading about them before attempting this wonderful recipe.

I think you are right! I am only 14 and even I realise that there is not a rising agent! Okay I'm British, what is cake flour? Self raising or plain? If plain the definatly use raising. Lets just say it was a typing error, honest mistake.
