    This cake reminds me of one on the Great British Baking Show. Of course their cake had a cute wrinkle: alternating layers were darker and lighter. Of course, the contestants often messed up on how much batter was needed to make the correct number of layers.

    This is where a gram digital scale comes in very handy to dole out the batter.

    Regards,

    Bingo. There were lots of comments on the recipe so I am surprised over all of these years that 1) they never weighed the batter or 2) no one else ever suggested doing just that.

    Thanks for the reminder I will add that to the comments on the NY Times site if I can.

    Oh and Cathy2, Was the cake from GBBO the Schichttorte? http://www.pbs.org/food/recipes/schichttorte/

    Okay I watched the segment. I want to give it a go!
