Very easy to make, but just not a very good cake. Pre-packaged store-bought cake mixes are twice as good.

it was easy, yummy, and transportable. i made it for my daughters 5th birthday and paired it with a buttercream. the cake was so moist and delish!

the batter was a bit runny, but i guess this is ok cuz i put all the ingredients in there. anyone else have runny cake batter?

I made this cake per the recipe and my family loves it, everyone always wants me to bring one for family events. I do however use my own vanilla fudge buttercream frosting.
