Very good cake! Everyone thought it was shortcake for the strawberries. We were in a hurry--we used an electric mixer, and the cake was done within an hour. We doubled the recipe and used two nonstick pans-one greased with pam, one ungreased. Only the one in the greased pan came out cleanly. Make sure your pans are very well greased.
This is a great recipe- although when I was making it I "accidentally" added an extra 1 cup of milk! I don't regret that mistake; every time I make this cake I add an extra cup of milk. It makes it very moist and very delicious! I hope this helped!
Loved it! Similar to a sponge or crumb cake. Delicious even using margarine instead of butter. Make sure to beat the sugar/butter (or margarine) for a long time to incorporate air - it makes the cake come out light and fluffy (do not beat to much after adding flour though). Added only 1 Tb more milk. My husband said he "couldn't stop eating it." It is plenty sweet - sweetness just right. Baked it in a sprayed 8" sq glass pan - still gooey at 30 mins so I baked it 10 mins more (40 mins total). Will make this again!
This is a wonderful recipe. It makes a nice sized cake for snacking or a small party. It isn't too sweet which is wonderful for tea & coffee. Its texture is similar to pound cake but I wouldn't go so far as to state that it's "very dry & dense"...just a slightly heavier texture than your standard cake. I imagine it would turn out badly if it were overmixed -- I stirred in the flour & milk by hand so that wouldn't happen.
Excellent St Patty's Day finish! This cake was moist delicious and stayed that way for a few days. Just sweet enough to enhance your tea and leave a nice aftertaste. Before sprinkling on the confectioner's sugar my wife put a little cinnamon-sugar on top! I recommend this one and we'll be making it again. If you're adventurous poke some holes in the top of your slice with toothpicks and then douse it with some Bailey's Irish Cream!! It will soak right into the holes. Ohhh Yummmmmayy!! (-:
this was very tasty although a tad bit "dry". i topped it with sliced strawberries and chocolate sauce. i think the "dryness" of the cake is not necessarily a downfall as it will stand up wonderfully under juicy fruits or sauces without becoming soggy. will make again for sure.
I was looking for an Irish dessert to bring to a potluck. This far exceeded my expectations. It was perfectly moist amazingly easy and is made with on-hand ingredients. This is the perfect treat to make in a pinch or for any reason at all. You may as well make two!
I loved this recipe! I only signed up to be a member of this site to say it! I made one change and that was that I made this recipe in a muffin tin. I shortened the cook time to 25 minutes and then topped it with fresh strawberries and black berries in a glaze. (Fresh whipped cream to top of course).. Oh my.. I should have made a double batch!!!
