Additional Notes

*Notes: A few have experienced an "eggy" taste with this recipe. Baking with whey can have that taste. Make sure you add enough vanilla to your batter, even if you don't have the paste. To further tone down the whey, add some almond extract as well (about 1/2 tsp of almond and 1 tsp vanilla). The final note is to TASTE the batter before you bake it. If the batter is good, the cake will be good. Happy baking!
