David's Yellow Cake
June 12, 2009

The cake does smell and taste eggy when it first comes out of the oven but when it cools off the eggy taste goes away. An angel food cake is the same way. If you eat a piece of it while it's still slightly warm it will taste eggy. After it's cooled off the eggy taste goes away. If the cake comes out dry it means you're baking it too long. Watch for the cake to rise up in the middle and then deflate slightly. It's at this point you should to see if the cake is done. If a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out with wet batter then give cake about 5 more minutes and check it again. If the toothpick comes out with gummy batter on it then give it about 3 more minutes. If it comes out with a few crumbs sticking to it then it's done. If it comes out perfectly clean then it's definitely done and may in fact be overdone. I'd also like to add that if you're going to change any of the ingredients in this recipe then you shouldn't expect it to come out right. Changing the ingredients and then giving a poor review is unfair to the person who submitted the recipe.
