I would think that this recipe needs about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to activate the baking soda. Read More

I am sorry to say that this cake is one of the greatest disappointments I have encountered in my 40 years of cooking. Maybe something was left out of the recipe but I found it dry and not flavorful at all. Only an inch high and basically the quality of a Hockey Puck. Not worth to have the name Amish in front of it. I have Amish Cookbooks and never have I had such a disaster as this one. Read More

This was light refreshing and full of flavor. A healthy twist for my kids to enjoy. We topped ours with flaked sweetened coconut during the last 8 minutes of baking...yummy! Read More

This cake came out beautifully - even though I had no eggs I added 4tbsp butter and 1/4 c. milk instead. I had no trouble with the cake not rising. It was fluffly and moist. Thanks! Read More

This is more the texture of a quick bread than a 'cake' - as other reviewers have said it doesn't rise and is rather thin and dense. The taste is fine and it certainly is quick and easy to make. Read More
