How did I screw up this cake?

julesincoq | Jun 6, 2010 06:20 PM

I made this epicurious cake today and it came out a bit heavy and rubbery. I thought the recipe looked like it had too much sugar in it but I always like to make a recipe exactly the way the recipe says the first time.

I just read through the reviews and many people said they reduced the sugar and loved it. But it also has 6 eggs! That seems almost pound cakeish... doesn't it? Any suggestions on how I can fix this? Or am I better for find another recipe.

The cream frosting was fantastic!! I'd do that again as a fruit dip too!
