Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Interesting idea.....a tender vanilla-buttermilk cake surrounded by a crunchy, nutty dacquoise. Flavour and texture were good for the most part but I had execution issues. The batter didn't rise high enough to meet the top of the meringue mixture used to coat the interior of the pan so there was a bit of breakage on inverting the cake, and the dacquoise layer at the bottom of the cake pan failed to become crisp. I think I'd have better luck baking this in a smaller loaf pan.
