Hi Millard,

I did some sleuthing... Is this the video?

At the time I'm writing, this video has 8.4 million views... and YouTube says it was uploaded just 7 days ago!

My husband asks to cook this cake 3 times a week! 😋The tastiest cake! #244

(It probably added 1 million views since you saw it!)

YouTube allows channels to hide their number of subscribers nowadays, which this channel has done, so we don't know exactly how many subscribers they have...

Thanks for pointing this out! I had no idea a simple recipe video could get so many views!

(Thanksgiving may have helped, but it's still unbelievable!)

Best wishes, :)


As I mentioned before, there are a lot of folks watching food videos on Youtube.

One video got my attention. The video is not exceptional, but the results surprised me.

The video was a German made video that had German instructions printed on the screen during the video. The video had English subtitles explaining the German text.

The video was a simple one showing a close up of ingredients going into a bowl to make a cake, mixing, stirring, pouring, etc.

It was 8 minutes long.

The title was (from memory) "The cake my husband asks me to bake three times a week".

This SIMPLE video in ONE WEEK had 7.4 million views!!!

With a simple figure of $5000 per million views, that is $35,000 !!!

I have no idea how this video was promoted, shared, or mentioned, but that is serious money. The only other videos that pull that many views are cat videos.

This should get people thinking about Youtube to make extra coin, if you've got the time.
