This is a terrible cake. I am a pastry chef and followed the recipe as written, plus my oven is well-calibrated. What I ended up with was a dry, hard product that was a complete waste. Needs at least 1 cup sour cream, another egg and 1/2 cup butter. Beware!



Following the recipe as directed made something more like cookie dough. Not pourable. I had to add 1 cup water. Cake turned out very dry. Maybe needs less flour and some oil for moisture.



This is a horrible recipe. It does not have enough moisture. The cake does not "pour." You can pick up the whole lump with a spoon. I actually think that the submitter must have left something out. I added milk just so it would spread and then when it was backed it had such a strong flavor of baking soda it gave everyone hartburn. Sorry
