    this was the worst recipe. I knew while I was mixing this wouldn’t turn out good. I still did it and this came out super dense. Horrible recipe.

    It went out really bad. i do not recommend this cake to other people. I made this with my friend twice. The first time we did this, it was very small. The second time we made to batches of it and poured it into the pan. Still very hard both of them. It was not even good to eat. It was very plain. It gave me a stomach ache afterwards. Worst cake recipe i ever made my whole life!!!!

    Good Cake!!! I added 1/2 a teaspoon of baking powder makes it WAY better. (Or add 1/2 a teaspoon of backing soda) :)

    horrible to eggie and nothing like the picture. used a 6" pan and came out like a pancake. Are you sure you should not use baking powder?

    not too bad, but they do feel a little dense. Overall definitely tasty! I will have to try again!

    The whole cake was deflated and kinda sticky. Never gonna make it again.

    pretty sure they meant to put egg whites instead of just 3 eggs. finished product looks nothing like the picture here. i used an 8" pan instead so i assumed it would be alittle flatter but it is barely thicker than a pancake. followed recipe exactly. won't be making this recipe again.

    I made this cake according to the instructions and was disappointed in the rise of the cake. Ordinarily, for a sponge cake you separate the eggs, beat the yolks and then add the sugar. I thought maybe I could get away with cutting corners on this recipe. :-) Wrong. I did make my own caster (or superfine sugar) but the rise was poor and I think it is because of the eggs. I didn't find the flavor too eggy as some said but the texture was chewy. The picture of this cake is misleading. I will make a regular sponge cake in the future.

    25 mins made the surface quite hard. Will try 20 next time. But good and easy recipe.

    This was delicious. Just like mom used to make. The only thing I did different was I used bread flour (sifted). Isn’t it amazing how when you beat the eggs and sugar together how fluffy they get (the fluffier the better). Thank you for the recipe.
