We liked this! It was fairly quick and easy to make, as promised. It produced a cake that was slightly dense; if I were not serving this to my child I would infuse this with rum or fruit flavored liqueurs and top with jam and whipped cream. But the kids liked it with icing topped with a rainbow of sprinkles. (They can wait a few years for that rum!!! LOL) Thanks, Inez!
I used 2 9 inch pans, greased them and baked for 25 minutes. I divided the batter into 7 bowls and added rainbow colored food coloring. You know - ROY G BIV. Anyway, after adding the colors I split the bowls between both pans in order- 1st the red, then orange, yellow, etc. keeping each new color inside the other. It made a circular rainbow cake that was delicious. I'm a little OCD, but you can put whatever color pattern you want. It was really good!
This is a great recipe! I made it for my family, and they wanted the recipe! Thank you so much!
