    Easy to make, but it does take some time to put together. Tastes Great!  -  26 Apr 2011


    I've done this specific recipe great many times but in a very different way: instead of oil I used melted margarine, milk instead of water and 4 instead of 3 eggs. Seperated the eggs, beated the yolks with the liquids, added the mix, beated again and finally the beaten egg whites. Maybe it's more difficult but it never fails: it turns out very fluffy, tall and is always a success.  -  17 Apr 2015
