I know this is called a cake, but to me, it is an omelet and I just got a new mini omelet pan, so I had to try it out with this recipe. The directions don't include when to add the flour, but I just added the 1/2 & 1/2 to the flour to make a slurry, then added it to the egg mixture. I made 1/3 of the recipe and followed it until I reached about the 10 minute cook time, then I flipped it over for about 2 more minutes and it was done to perfection!! I served it with some fresh fruit and a potato au gratin recipe for a wonderful brunch!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.
