Cook's Notes

The cake layers can be baked, cooled, and wrapped in plastic up to a day ahead. Just before serving, spread filling over a layer, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge, then assemble the cake. When it's time for dessert, make the meringue, frost the cake, and brown it.

    I tried the cake at first it did taste like corn bread. The next day it was amazing with the vanilla butter cream and frozen strawberries.

    This cake turned out perfectly for me last week, first time trying it and it was gorgeous and smooth! I don't understand why the previous reviewers are saying that its dry or eggy... The only thing I have to check is if the meringue is supposed to be so soft still? Or is it supposed to be hard like proper meringue?

    The cake dry and flavorless; the addition of the raspberry filling helped, but only a little. My boyfriend said it tasted like cornbread. Yikes!

    Ok, I have one word for this cake. Disappointing. Because am an experienced baker, I saw several changes that needed to made right away. The filling needed just a little sugar, the preserves was not enough to take the sour edge off of the frozen raspberries. Additionally, the meringue of course needed a little cream of tartar-why did she omit that. The cake itself really lacks moisture, maybe a little more milk, butter or maybe even a little bit of oil added would hopefully help.

    I can't see a way to edit my last comment, I meant to suggest using a kitchen *torch* for browning.

    I was very excited to try this, a meringue coated cake?! Sign me up! However, I would suggest a kitchen for browning the meringue - in the oven mine browned solely on the top, not the sides! I would also recommend a different cake recipe - the one here results in an incredibly dense cake that smells and tastes a little to "egg-y" for my liking. The meringue recipe is simple and delicious, mine turned out incredibly smooth and silky. Great idea, execution could have been better. :)

    I am looking forward to making this cake--hope it turns out the first time for me as I want to bake it for guests. I enjoy this section of Martha Stewart recipes--I never new this one existed until today and I think my health has improved enough to get back into the kitchen and hopefully, back to quilting--my two loves besides my husband.
