    Hi,jett2whit,Davidson's eggs are wonderful for any recipe that calls for raw or slightly cooked eggs or when I want sunny-side up or poached eggs. They are pasteurized to avoid risk of salmonella. They are a little more expensive and I think they are local but you might ask at your grocery store if they could get them. You can look them up at
    The cake is delicious, but if you are watching your cholesterol I think you might save this for company! Thanks for your comment, Marcia
