Found this recipe in a very old church cook book. It's the favorite of my grandchildren. I bake it often. It's very easy. I usually frost it with a sour cream frosting, but if this is too sweet for your taste a thin butter icing would work well. A very light cake.

This is just as good as the scratch cake version I make. I added 1/2 c. coconut and iced with cream cheese icing. Family and friends loved it and could not believe it was a cake mix.
