Hi! I would love to try out this recipe, sounds great! But, as I live in Europe, we have different measurements. I can figure out pretty much everything accept... the sticks of butter! No idea how much one stick is. could you please let me know? Thanx a lot!
one stick of butter is a quarter pound. 4 ounces.
I tried this recipe and I LOVE it!!!!! Thank you for posting it!!!!
You're Welcome!
Is this cake sturdy enough to be carved if baked in round or square pans?
It has a tender crumb. It may be OK to carve if frozen first.
