    There is no way that anyone has produced anything that looks like a cake with the ingredients listed in this recipe. A 13 x 18 cake pan cant be filled by a single cup of flour. Eight eggs? The mix of these ingredients barely covered the pan when poured in and after 18 minutes it created a 1/4 inch thick egg fritter. I made an account on this web site just to say how bad this "cake" was. I can only assume that the ingredients were improperly transcribed but I'll never use this web site again.

    Usually any cake recipe I have tried from here is great. This is not one of them. It is horrible!! DO NOT waste your time or money on making this cake. I was planning on making it for my son's 1st birthday party and I made this as a "practice" cake to see how it turned out before the big day. Boy am I glad I did that beforehand! It is extremely thin and has the consistency of an old sponge and doesn't taste much better. Sorry Martha, you missed the mark with this one :(

    Hi I made this cake and it did'nt turn out . It dose not call for any milk or oil just the eggs which is the only liquid in the rescipe. The cake was flat about a inch high and it didn't cook all the way in the middle I tried it and it was nasty. I think it should call for some other kind of liquid.
