    kzbhansen's Note:

    My granmother was German and made this cake and I have very fond memories of eating this with her at the dining room table talking away the troubles of a young girls day. LOL Lots of butter and eggs. Not a low cal low carb cake but its soooo good. I had to sit and watch her make this stopping her to trya and measure this recipe out. This makes 1 bundt cake or 6 muffins.

      used yogurt instead of sour cream, and whole wheat pastry flour instead of all purpose flour.
      everybody loved it, adviced that it could be better with 2 cups of sugar... thanks for sharing the recipe.

      Followed exactly, I was nervous when it seemed more like a cookie dough, then the egg whites loosened it up TG. Made for my daughters birthday. She was thrilled. Thanks for the great recipe.
