These are wonderful! Dense, moist and delicious! I didn't frost them-they're sweet enough. They mixed up easily by hand. I will definitely make these again!

Nice easy recipe. I made as a snack cake in a sqaure pan and cut into squares to avoid trying to find the muffin tins. Bakes for 35 minutes. Cake rose very well. Frsoted with some fat free cream cheese frosting. This will be nice for DH breakfasts. Thanks.
