You MUST use CAKE FLOUR. All purpose has too much gluten, so without the eggs to lift it, it falls, gets mushy, etc. A good cake flour substitute is for every cup of all purpose flour you use, remove 2 tablespoons of it and add two tablespoons of cornstarch. Sift it together, and use in place of the cake flour. Read More

I made this cake for a friend of my for her baby shower. She is a vegetarian so I had a hard time finding a cake without eggs. The cake was a big hit. If you follow the recipe and cook it long enough (the tester inserted into the center comes out clean) it will turn out great. I used a Butter Cream Icing and it was yummy. Read More

The cake cooked through unlike some others' experiences but it tasted terrible. It has a very odd aftertaste and frosting didn't help mask it. I'm glad I made another batter just in case. Read More

VERY DISAPPOINTING!!! I doubled this recipe and ended up not eating any of it. I tried making cupcakes and they fell and then I used the remaing batter for a cake only for it to fall too. It was just a big waste of my time and ingredients! Read More
