Yum, yum, yum! I am so glad I decided not to go with boxed mix - this recipe blows Betty Crocker out of the water! Tastes fresh and home made, very lush and so incredibly moist. I don't get the ...

Worked as advertised...a very good cake. I substituted sour milk (a tablespoon of lemon juice mixed with each cup of milk) for buttermilk, and it still worked perfectly.
