    wildheart's Note:

    Our biggest nibbling at the cake till its gone. This way, you only bake a smaller cake! You get the great taste of cake, a reasonable sized piece.....and a cake mix makes 3-4 cakes!

      What a fun little cake. I was skeptical but went ahead since all the other reviews said it really works. It does make a nice size cake. I used 3 Tbsp water and wasn't sure what was the right consistency. It baked 14 minutes and cools very quickly.

      WOW!! This recipe is wonderful!! When I first saw that it took only 1 cup of cake mix, I didn't think it would be enough, buy it was I did need to add another tablespoon of water to make it the right consistancy. Other than that, everything else was just the right amount. I like cake but a whole cake is just too much for me. This size is perfect!! Thanks for a great recipe!!
