After reading the reviews, I made this cake with great expectations. The recipe itself was easy enough and the batter made up beautifully. The problem came with the baking. One reviewer noted that the baking time was excessive as her cake was done in 45'. I believe the problem with this recipe is not with the baking time but with the temperature. 350 degrees is too hot an oven for this delicate cake. I plan to remake this recipe and bake it at 300 degrees. This recipe can be used in a variety of desserts, and I believe that modifying the baking conditions will resolve any problems.

This was wonderful! I had never known of a cake that was made like this so I just had to try it. My daughter's frineds ate the entire cake in 15 minutes and I made a second that same day for my family. It is nice that it doesn't use as many eggs as most angel cake recipes and has an incredible texture and crust.

Delicious. Has a great sweet taste. It's great by itself or with fruit (strawberries, blueberries) - doesn't need icing. I was intimidated at first by heating the sugar and water - but it wasn't a big deal and was a really easy cake to make. I would definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing a wonderful recipe!
