My family and I love the cake. I have make it 3 times in the last 4 months. It's a good cake.
I don't know what went wrong with this recipe but it had to bake for a very long time, an extra 40 minutes and was still a bit gooey inside. I am wondering about the butter, maybe 2 cups is too much? that is a lot of butter. And 6 eggs?? It actually fell the first time I took it out of the oven. Tastes okay but unless I can correct this, I won't make it again.
too heavy, I'll try one with baking powder next time
