This is a cake my mom used to make when I was growing up. It's very moist and delicious all by itself, but even yummier with a dollop of whipped cream!

I created an account here just to tell you how much I love this recipe! I've made it three times in the past two weeks and my roommates are still requesting more! It's moist, flavorful and perfect! p.s. added some ginger for extra spice.

It's an old standby in my kitchen too. I usually use applesauce for the water because I am using my homemade frozen applesauce and it comes in 2 cup quantities. This is good with a handful of raisins. An excellent snack cake - no icing required (although my kids would not agree)!

I thought this was a very good simple cake. Very moist. My cake started burning after 40 minutes though so I would check your cake earlier than the 60 minutes given. (Maybe it was just my oven.) I thought it needed something more so I made a frosting to spread on it. Thank you for the recipe! I'm sure I will use all the time!
