This is a very simple and yummy cake to make from scratch with NO help from a cake mix.Its great for using up eggs. Its light and fluffy, my kids love it, they call it "a smoothie cake" because it tastes like their favorite tropical smoothie... Give it ago. P.S. Over here we can get liquid egg whites in a carton, which is very handy, not to sure if you can get that in the USA!!
