Traditional Madeira Cake

Cakes do not need icing and always taste great. In this cake, similar to a pound cake, it is the butter that gives it the rich taste it's well known for.

The recipe turned out great for me, a first time baker @38yrs.old,but i think it called for too many eggs. The first one I baked was good, but the second one could have won a prize. I used 6 eggs instead and used margarine instead of butter.

The batter was SOOO buttery. I knew this cake would be like heaven. I followed the recipe to the letter(except the bake time. It was done in about half the time). However, when I ate it after baking, it tasted more like cooked eggs. I really did not taste any butter. I think it was a waste of my egg and butter supply. Sorry, but I would not make this again.

Great recipe and so easy to make. The only thing I ommited were the eggs. The cake will rise without them. I would recommend to this anyone. This is even Great for Kids or Adults who have allergic reactions to eggs.

Very Yummy!! I did go by the suggestion of only adding 6 eggs.. turned out fine... and no eggy taste!.... When it came to beating the whites I added 2/3 of the sugar required to form a meringue like substance... it always seems to work out better for me. I would also suggest glaze (for that extra sweet tooth!) with 1/4 cup of milk, and 3/4 cup of white sugar, with a teaspoon of vanilla(combine over medium/low heat).
