Wow! This cake was absolutely tooooo sweet. Adjust sugar to approximately 2 cups. I never heard of 3 cups of sugar to 3 cups of flour. I made this and did not serve for Easter. Made another cake for dessert. Much much too sweet. Read More

This cake was very disappointing. The texture is quite odd as it is heavy and wet. No one in my family cared for it. Read More

I gave this recipe 4 stars because although it was easy to prepare I thought it was a bit too sweet. I would consider cutting the amount of sugar in it just a bit maybe 2 cups of sugar instead of 3. A Tasty cake all the same though Thxs for the recipe Read More
