This is a super-good cake...so light and moist! I love how easy it is to mix together, and a big + is that it's made with stuff I usually have on hand anyway! Followed your easy directions right down the line, and, voila!! Thanks so much for sharing, CH, You have a big winner here!
This was super easy and pretty darn good. I will try adding fruit next time to see what I get. Thanks
This was delicious! I've also made a 2nd one using orange cake mix, and it was gone in an hour! thanks again.
