    HokiesMom's Note:

    From Family Circle magazine - have no idea when as I just cut out the recipe card with the picture. This is made in a jelly-roll pan. I have made this recipe again and used just 2 cups of flour (instead of the original 3 cups and the cake was flat so I'd suggest adjusting to 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 cups of flour) It should have the normal consistency of a cake batter when finished mixing.

      I wanted to love this, but the cake was so dry, even with the mousse, it just crumbled when slicing. (this surprises me with the buttermik as the liquid) I made it exactly as written with no deviations and don't usually have any problems baking, but for some reason this just didn't turn out like I'd hoped. The batter was extremely thick too and I can't help wonder if there was too much flour. Not sure what the problem was, but would like to try it again sometime to see if I can get it right.
