Restaurant Eve's Cake

KatherineKatherine

This simple recipe uses butter that is melted rather than creamed with the sugar, as in many recipes. Don’t be afraid of overbeating it. Both the cake batter and the frosting require a good deal of whipping in order to incorporate the necessary air.

  • This makes a generous amount of icing, so those with a not-so-sweet tooth may want to reduce the quantities or expect leftovers.
