This was a very good recipe. My daughter is allery to egg and gluten. So I replace the flour to 1 cup rice flour, 1/3 cup corn starch, and 1/3 cup soybean flour. And the cake turn out very good. I'm going to use this recipe to make her birthday cake next month. Thanks.

Maybe I am missing something. I am loathe to give a negative review but I just made this cake wound up tossing it out. When made according to the directions, the batter was closer to the consistency of cookie dough. I had to add 3/4 cup of water to get it to a consistency where it could be spread into a cake pan. The cake had a nice flavor but was very dry.
