    I made this cake! It was pretty good overall but I made a few mistakes I think 🤔
    1. Left it too long in the oven which dried it out a bit
    2. Used plain yogurt bc no buttermilk :( and I think it made the batter too thick?
    3. Eggs were medium instead of large so the cake wasn’t very yellow as some of the yolks were pretty small
    4. Was a bit dense which might’ve been from under mixing at the last step
    5. Didn’t have kosher salt so I used sea salt but I think the crystals were too big and left distinctly salty areas in the cake
    Other things:
    - cake had very distinct buttery flavor in some parts

    Anyone with a French/European name on their channel should at least provide the grams/kilos version ofthe ingredients. You know, there's two different conversion tables and we cannot know which one you are using.

    I always watch her gourmet videos but I love that this is something way more doable by the average noob who doesn't wanna go out and buy a bunch of special equipment. I might actually make this the next time I need to make a cake!

    Made this last weekend! Came out great after I had to scrap a King Arthur Flour cake recipe (2019 recipe of the year, my a$$!). Everyone loved the cake and I got a lot of compliments on the different, not-so-sweet frosting. I am and serious yellow cake, chocolate frosting fan and I didn't think the frosting was chocolaty enough but had fair warning. Would definitely make again (maybe with a whipped ganche frosting...)!

    Home bakers- try Wilton Cake Strips! They keep the edges from over browning and stop the cake from doming.
