Hi Sharon

I began to read the recipe and realised that you left out eggs in the ingredients. I am assuming becuase you have eggs in the instructions, that they have to go in.


Do you use 2 eggs?

This is very similar to a tried and true vanilla cake recipe I use all the time....

By the way, how much does a stick of butter weigh? I'm an Aussie, and our butter comes in 500g paper wrapped packets.. just over 1 lb in your measurements. Actually I wish they would sell it in smaller amounts... especially when you run out just before pay

Bev, Sorry I DID leave out the eggs in the 1-2-3-4 cake recipe.It calls for 4 eggs. As for the butter it calls for 1 cup or 2 sticks my guess is maybe half of that package.I really don't know anything about it as far as weight. I'm very sorry,but I'm very flattered that someone from that far away enjoyed my recipe.

2 sticks of butter is 1/2 pound. So you were right about that.
