This is a recipe from my Mom I've had it for years. It's a rich cake almost like egg nog, and easy to make.

This cake tasted like a cross between angel food and butter cake. It rose up perfectly and I did not think it too sugary as others thought. I dripped a chocolate glaze over it and it tasted great. I will make it again but I might experiment with adding more butter for a more tender cake. Though the glaze went really good with this, I'm thinking that the firm texture may not go well with frosting. This recipe really came through for me as I racked my resources looking for a cake that was fast, easy and didn't eatup all my groceries. Thank You. Read More

I was in the mood for a good rich cake but not in the mood for a big mess and this cake was convenient. Plus I don't like adding tons of butter so the recipe was really friendly to me. It has the taste of ladyfingers. I noticed it had a nice firm texture so I thought it would hold up great in milk. I drenched the cooked cake in normal milk and it tastes just like a tres leches cake. The cake was a bit sweet but adding the milk made the sweetness just right. I will use this as my base cake when I am in the mood for tres leches. Read More

This makes a great cupcake. I found it a little too sweet on it's own but with a cup of coffee it was a perfect after-dinner treat. And hey it didn't need frosting of any kind so it was perfect. Read More

This is an awesome cake. It was very simple to make. My family loved it and so did I which is a really BIG compliment because I don't usually like cake. When I made this cake I put strawberries between the layers. Will definitely use this recipe again. Read More
