I love this cake. My Mother used to make a cake like this only it was called Romance Cake. I think that was when you served it to your sweetheart well lets just the cake was named for a reason,FABULOS. I used my printer to print this on several a pieces of printable magnet. It is on my frige and I gave others to friends and family I won't missplace this recipe ever again.

Quite good, with a great flavor. I read what another reviewer wrote and started baking the cake before I put the meringue on (~5 minutes). I didn't need to do that. Next time, I'll probably add a couple more egg whites to the meringue, just to have a thicker topping.
