Need help with cake recipe - followed directions - must be technique

This cake looked easy...instead it was one of the most dense cakes I have ever eaten! Should have been nice & light. Had a full recipe of raspberry mousse in between.

5 eggs, room temp
1/2 cup granulate sugar
1 cup sifted flour
2 tablespoons melted butter

Directions were as follows:
"Beat eggs with sugar in medium mixer bowl until thick and lemon colored, fold in flour and then better. Pour into two 9 inch layer cake pans lined with waxed paper. Bake @ 350 (C) for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Remove from pans and cool completely."

I noticed when I folded in the flour, the batter collapsed a bit. Should I have continued to beat with electric hand mixer? Or did I over-beat the egg and sugar mixture? Or is it wrong ingredient portions?

Please help fellow CH!!!
