    Jane from Ohio's Note:

    My Aunt sent me this recipe about 15 years ago from the Detroit Free Press. This cake is so-o-o-o-o delicious. Everytime I make this cake, someone always asks for the recipe. It's also easy to make.

      I learned how to make this cake when I was 17, from a friend. Back then it was a "secret recipe." I guess it's not-so-secret anymore. Delicious cake :o)

      My friend had baked this cake and brought it over, and I LOVED it. Decided to try it out, but i was really disappointed. The cake came out rubbery, difficult to cut. The frosting was great though. I followed the recipe to a T, dont know what went wrong! Maybe I'll give it a second shot since I know it can come out great.

      I have made this cake many times and I don't know what RNChef was talking about. This cake is very moist and yummy. RNChef should learn how to cook. You can make a cake without butter or oil & still have it moist. She should follow directions more closely. It's easier to make than a box cake.
