"I LOVE this recipe. I have used this recipe so much (sometimes modified with a bit more sugar) and it never fails me. Its always moist and delicious.

The smoother the butter and egg are the less grainy it will be!"

To ensure proper moistness, I'll sometimes add 1/8 to 1/4 cup of a light oil to the batter before baking (especially if the relative humid..." See moreity is a little on the dry side). I hope you'll find easy, versatile this recipe as tastey as my family and I do."

I also used cake flour and whole milk and baked it in round layers for exactly 40 minutes,the least amount of time called for. I frosted it with chocolate frosting and it disappeared in record time. I have found my cake recipe. Thanks Scottley!!!"
