When the correct ingredients are used this recipe is 5 stars and very easy. This is very similar to my family recipe, except (as others have noticed) it's missing the most important ingredient ...
I make this cake from my mother-in-laws recipe. She is PA Dutch. You really need molasses - use instead of oil. Will taste more like shoo-fly pie. I rated this recipe using molasses not oil.
The cake tasted too floury and was somewhat puddingy. My family did not like it.
