Like a pound cake. The recipe called for 5 eggs but I only had 4 and it still turned out okay. Even Ramona the cat stole a piece. We had some last night and some for breakfast just now. The chemistry of baking is so interesting--the European recipes use separated eggs and fold things together while the Americans usually beat them into the batter whole. Texture is so important. The book I used is Kaffeehaus by Rick Rodgers, with recipes and photographs of old time coffee houses in Vienna, Budapest, and Prague.
