This is one of the easiest cake recipes around-and very kid-friendly. It was one of the first cakes I learnt how to make.

Was this easy? Yes, very. Did this taste good? No, not even close. This tasted terrible. This recipe had over 4 stars and I was in a hurry so I just printed it out. Then later read the reviews and just like many recipes people rate it on the extra additions they add to it and not the original recipe itself.

I didn't have any self raising flour, so I made it with all purpose and turned into a brownie mix. Tasted good. I added coconut for flavor.

Absolutely loved it! And the best part is that it was so easy to make. I don't really like cakes that are too sweet so this was perfect. And I don't like icing on my cake either. What was even better was the fact that it only requires ingredients that are already available in your kitchen. Thanks for this :)
