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

This was a pretty good cake. I read the reviews before I made it and I added 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder to avoid the runny batter that several others mentioned. The cake was very moist and dense with a great flavor. It made a lovely cake for my sons birthday.


I thought this cake was excellent, my husband loved it and it was easy!
