I would just like to add to anyone making this cake, that simply spreading margarine over the top when it first comes out of the oven is delicious and you don't have to make icing. I've added this because that has how I've been eating it my entire life.

I must admit I was a bit skeptical... but a great cake it truly is, easy, quick, cheap, and unbelievable! my husband could't believe it had no butter and no eggs. I added candied cherries just to please my little girl but I'm longing to add nuts or a cup of coffee instead of water...
