I didnt make the crumble on top, but followed the recipe for the cake. Tasted very yummy the next morning as the recipe mentioned. Will make this more often as hubby doesn't like chocolate! Tastes wonderful with Coffee.
I'm a wee bit of a lazy baker, so I didn't really follow the directions exactly. I mixed the dry ingredients, then added the wet. I didn't want to waste four egg yolks, so I used two whole eggs. I also used vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream because that was what I had in the fridge. After I made the cake, I realized I was supposed to use unsalted butter, but I used the margarine that was in the refridgerator and it worked fine. The only other things I changed were using the zest of a whole lemon rind instead of just a teaspoon and brown sugar instead of sucanat. I tend to always bake in silicone pans because I don't have to grease them and they're easier to clean, and just used my round silicone cake pan rather than a 9 inch square pan. Next time I will probably try stevia and substitute out the eggs. This cake is delicious, and ten times more delicious the next morning. I had the Starbucks version with a birthday gift card a week ago and was dying to find a copycat version. The topping on this recipe is nothing like it, but I like it better.
Yes :) --DK
Oh yes. --DK
Pls refer my Tips section for substitution list
Its always unsalted butter until otherwise mentioned. I am surprised you even tasted butter owing to the fact that its not a major component in this cake. May be cos it was undercooked or something? Every oven is different, so I am not sure what temperature and the placement works in your case. Try increasing the temp next time, or try placing the cake tin at the bottom rack and check around 150-20 min mark. One thing for sure - this does not taste like butter cake!

2. I have already mentioned it in my Tips section
It doesnt work in IE for some reason Swapna :( .But you can try Mozilla/Chrome.
Oh yes you can. Have added that in my Tips section. Any pan will work depending on your preference. Just make sure the pan is deep/sufficient enough for the batter to rise
Yup..u r right..rectified pronto :) Thanks for bringing it to my notice :)
