I just made this cake and I must say its great unlike others have said I don't think it came out dry at all and the center was cooked perfectly. Its light fluffy and has a nice texture. I myself doing a slightly more low carb baking style replaced the 1 cup white sugar with 1/2 cup splenda baking blend. And cooked it for about 32 minutes. So altogether a great cake. Read More

I didn't care for this cake at all. It tasted just like Jiffy muffin mix to me. Not a good thing to make cupcakes out of. They fell completely apart and the edges were very crispy. I will keep looking for a good cake recipe. Read More

This cake was pretty tasty. The only problem I had was that it tasted a little dry. I would try baking it for 5 or so minutes less. I tried it with "Cool Whipped Frosting " and they went together very well. My family liked it as well. Read More

Easy delicious cake! I made it because I had a large carton of heavy whipping cream I needed to use up and was really happy with the way this turned out. Very light and much better tasting than store-bought cake mix. Read More

This cake is excellent! The more days that go by the more it tastes like a pound cake. It also freezes well. Perfectly moist reminded me of a wedding cake flavor. Read More

It's still in the oven but as far as being easy to make it's been fine. The 9inch pan was not large enough and now my oven needs cleaning and my house smells but hopefully it will be tasty after the mess is cleaned up. I'll edit my review upon completion... Read More

WOW! This cake is delicious. It tastes like a gourmet split between wedding cake and pound cake. I put it in a 8x8x2 square pan and it made a thick cake. Delicious! Read More

Think I found my go-to homemade cake recipe! Followed the recipe exactly as listed and it turned out beautifully moist with a good flavor. I doubled this to make a two-tier cake and had enough for two 9" pans and a dozen cupcakes. Read More
