    This recipe calls for 4 eggs and NO salt. So it comes out tasting a lot like a Dutch Baby pancake. It's very very eggy, crisp on top, and there's no salt to balance the sugar. I agree with the other reviewers that it's not a "basic cake recipe" at all. It's not a sponge cake. It doesn't have the standard rise to it, and the texture is strange. That said, it was a delicious base for me. I added almond extract & toasted almonds, and I used virgin coconut oil in place of butter (I still creamed it with the sugar, and a couple tablespoons of milk). I think it's a delicious cake, but not at all what I think of when I imagine a basic sponge. It doesn't rise the same way as a standard cake- the eggs cause it to rise stiffly along the outer edges like a dutch baby, then the center slowly rises a bit (not much though).

    Followed to the letter, twice, both times didn't rise enough - came out too "dense" and not risen. Friends said it was a good "pound cake." But I expected lighter and fluffier.
