Lemon Cake-OOPS!!!

I have a lemon cake in the oven right now. Ina's yummy recipe-
Only problem is, it's been in the oven for 50 min. as the recipe calls for. It doesn't look like it's supposed to and I figured out about 10 minutes ago exactly why...
I forgot the 3 eggs!!!!
It's rising, but doesn't look ready and is not turning the nice yellow/brown color it should.
What should I expect it to be like once I take it out? Think it'll be edible?
See, I send baking screw-ups with the hubby for his co-workers and I wonder if this will be okay to people who aren't bakers/cooks, and have no clue.
Just wondering what the absence of eggs will do to the taste/texture.
Any thoughts?
