i think this may be the worst cake i have made in sixty years! it was dense and bland. i think there may be too much flour and eggs in this recipe. it reminded me of the german baumkuchen, both in flavor and texture.

I made this recipe precisely as directed but no one in my family liked this cake (made it as a birthday cake). It tastes like a pancake, lacking butter flavor and sweetness. Other cake flour recipes I've made never call for this much flour which may be why it tasted so bland. On the plus side it baked beautifully and because it's a very dense cake it was easy to handle and frost.

I made cupcakes with this recipe. When it was hot out of the oven the density was perfect. I left it overnight to ice the next day and they were like rocks. Horrible. I will not be making this again. I guess I should have known when the batter was too thick to poor.

This cake was horrible! It was dry and bland. I was so disappointed in the outcome and feel like I wasted good groceries on a flop of a cake!
