  1. Hi Jasmine !
    I tried this old recipe last Week and it was the most delicious cake I had in a while ! It turned out a bit like a pudding : not fluffy but dense and fudgy ! The texture was a bit weird but I loved it and I share it with friends : they liked it too ! Thank you for this wonderful recipe, light and perfect for spring !
    Take care and have a beautiful day <3
