This cake was moist, sweet , and delicious. Zaar gave really weird conversions to the U.S. system so I had to wing it. The 8 oz. of butter was probably a bit excessive so I would cut back a bit next time. I used 1 1/4 cups of flour and nearly a cup of milk. I used lemon juice instead of zest and sprinkled with cinnamon. Yum! Made for PAC Spring '08
