      I used this recipe to make cupcakes with cream cheese icing for a baby shower. They were a huge hit, and my husband devoured the leftovers.

      I also have made this cake from "The Cake Mix Doctor" cookbook. The preface gives recognition to the Pillsbury Bake-off. It is very moist and decadent. I've served it to many rave reviews. I've never tried it as a layer cake and I would be interested in how it turns out. This is definately a keeper for me and mine.

      This is word for word the exact recipe from the book The Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn. This is a very moist and delicious cake but I would love to hear from anyone that has figured out how to make it in layers and have it not be so dense. The layers bake flat and shrink from the side of the pan. I have made it many time and it is always a big hit. I've also made it with strawberry pie filling and used other cake mix flavors and other pie filling flavors.
