I got this recipe off this website about 6 years ago... could it be that long? I think it was. I never post reviews, but I think that this one deserves a rave review. As a cake decorator, I've made this cake countless times over the years. It is dense and rich. Used it in wedding cakes and it perfect for 3D cakes. It is delicious. I love the flavor. I usually make this cake without the frosting following the cake recipe exactly. Sometimes, I'll add different flavors: ground almond (about 1/2-3/4 cup) and almond extract instead of vanilla or lemon zest(about 3-4 lemons) with lemon extract. Tried adding cocoa one time and that didn't come out that great. It is delicious with a chocolate buttercream frosting. Give it a try...
This review is for the cake alone, as I made this into cupcakes and used a different frosting. I found the batter thick and luxurious. The cake was moist but not all that sweet, so it worked well with the buttercream frosting I topped it with.
..I Bow to Mrs Oppenhiemer!!
This cake was Absolutely Fantastic!!!
This cake had a great butter taste, was Moist,Delicious,and best of all EASY To make!!!!.I sliced it,and placed a Fresh Strawberry,Blueberry Mixture on top That was tossed with a small amount of Sugar,and then I topped That with some fresh whipped topping. Were talk'n Heaven Here!!.Thanks Again Mrs Oppenhiemer for leaving this to pass on to our generation!!!!
The Only change i made to this recipes was that i added 1 more egg.I was really worried about this being an heavy cake from the batter being a bit thicker than most cake batters.But to my Suprise this is a very light and moist cake!I will be making this again.Everyone loved it and i made this cake for a 4th of July Girl Scout picnic useing buttercream icing decorating it to look like a huge slice of watermelon.None of it was left at the end of the day!THNX MUCH:)
This is a very dense almost like a pound cake. It is really good I don't make it with the frosting I use a chocolate truffle frostin and it is sooo yummy. My family loves it. I used it when I want a rich dense buttery cake...
I don't know if I did something wrong because it had such high marks but my family didn't like this one. It was really heavy like a brick. The frosting was also too much - maybe I beat it too long. The recipe doesn't indicate how long to beat it. I was disappointed at the family gathering when we finally cut into this one.
I don't own a bundt pan so I used a regular 9x13 cake pan for this recipe. I was a little worried it would rise too much for my pan because I was also following the Oreo cake recipe with this cake (which by the way I would not recommend). This cake's flavor is fantastic and can't wait to make it WITHOUT the stupid Oreos & chocolate chips x) Thanks a lot! Bae
