a bit of work, but a good cake. I made a mistake of not reading the recipe correctly therefore I ended up doing even more work..maybe this might help others who are thinking of making this cake. STEP ONE: Whip the egg whites STEP TWO: Whip the egg yokes I made the mistake of only whipping the egg whites, so when I started creaming the butter, I had to stop halfway and whip the egg yolks first. Though this recipe is a bit of work, the texture of the cake is very different I think because of the method used to make the cake. Do cut down the sugar to one cup cos I felt 1 1/4 cup sugar made the butter cake a LITTLE too sweet.
