This is the worst cake I ever tasted. It tasted like cornbread. It was too salty and heavy. This is not a good recipe at all.



This is the single worst recipe I've ever gotten from this website - the recipes are usually great. The cake tasted like badly cooked pancakes.



Much too heavy and tasteless
