I made this today evening. It was nice, however, it could be a little better. The only problem was that the cake didn't fluff up. I presume that it could partly be due to the absence of eggs as this cake is an eggless one. I liked the taste, I must admit. Infact, its 1:40am here where I live, and I am having a small piece of this cake:) Its yummmmm, thank you for sharing the recipe.

Can you say yum? Yes the bottom is more like a sauce than a pudding - but boy howdy is it good. Warm from the oven with a little vanilla ice cream - a keeper at our house.

this cake turned out terrible. I was certain to follow all the directions correctly and like in other reviews, the cake didn't fluff up as it is eggless. There was no way to prevent the water from speading unevenly and some parts burned and others were soup. do not use thie recipe.
