"I made this cake last night. It was absolutely delicious - light and fluffy, almost caramel-like in flavour. The only change that I made to the recipe was to use real maple syrup instead of imitatio..." See moren, and to use about 1 1/2 tablespoons instead of 1 teaspoon. I also made the maple butter frosting and it really made the cake something special. I have already had requests to make it for several parties in the near future, and given the response, I will definitely oblige!"

A solution might be to add another 1/4 cup sugar, or maybe another egg - or swap out the milk for buttermilk or sour cream. Or use half butter, half shortening. Any or all of these suggestions might help, but you shouldn't have to toy around with this type of recipe. It should already be trustworthy. I am in no hurry to make this again or even have another piece. (I didn't even finish the one I cut for myself) My 3-star rating is generous."
