This wonderful cake is simple and delicious. It's gooey in the middle and meringue-like on the top. Enjoy as a dessert, afternoon tea or elevenses.
Wow!! I have to say, i was skeptical at first. So easy? So few ingredients? The results were great i did take some liberties, cut down the sugar to 1c and added a packet of vanilla sugar, then a few drops of almond extract. I topped with sliced almonds and a sprinkling of brown sugar, and put it under the broiler for a minute after it was done. I wanted to find out if it was good chilled but it didn't last that long. thanks for the quick, easy, and elegant recipe! - 15 Aug 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a fabulous cake! It is so easy and simple to make and I love the slightly dense, moist and crackly meringue top. This recipe is pretty exact, and I have found that if I try to mess with this recipe in just about any way, it turns into a normal cake without the moistness and meringue top. When I have changed the bread crumbs or mixed too much air into this recipe, or tried to half this recipe I am ususally dissappointed (I think halving the egg is tough and too much egg makes it dry). But give this cake a try and be exact the first time through. It is Elegant and fabulous alone, or with Breyers French Vanilla Ice cream, Hazelnuts and strawberries on the side - 15 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was so easy to make, you use regular ingredients that you have at home; its fast and taste great. I also added a little vanilla extract which was good! - 09 Oct 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
