Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wonderful taste but very crumbly I came across this recipe and was excited to try it. It sounded great! I followed the recipe exactly and the results were very disappointing. The beating after for 1 minute I'm thinking is what caused the sinking in the middle. I haven't used cake flour before this but they came out to crumbly and just seems like it was mainly "air". I would like if they had a little more density while being fluffy. I know they purpose of cake flour vs all-purpose flour but these were falling apart. Overall, the taste was fantastic! I hope trying it again might yeild different results!
