I halved the recipe to make a dozen cupcakes for Easter (which was plenty of batter - actually filled one small heart pan too) and these were great! very easy due to the mixing method and the cupcakes had a great texture - I had the one that was left over from Easter dinner, on Tuesday evening and it was still perfectly moist and yummy. Next time I will reduce the sugar just a little; I did keep the vanilla the same and enjoyed the flavor. I will definitely make this again, and I think the thin batter will work well in really detailed pans so I am looking forward to trying that. Edit: I've just realised I read teaspoons of butter as Tablespoons! I'll have to try the real version now.

A very simple recipe, and a great tasting cake. I made one variation to the recipe in that I added about a half cup of shredded coconut to the mix and so I had a cocunut milk cake which was very tasty.

Made this many times using 10 TABLESPOONS butter ...NOT teaspoons. Can also vary flavor by adding 1/2 tsp. lemon extract. Since it soon will be strawberry season, consider using this cake with your berries and whipped topping. You will love it!

I thought this cake was pretty good and very easy to make. However, it lacked something. I think it needs either some cinnamon, or coconut added to the recipe, or should be served with honey on top. Thanks for posting.

I made this and sent it to work with DH. They seemed to enjoy it. I also made homemade carmel sauce to put on top of it. Then heated the cake a little. It was good. I think next time I will put something to spice it up a little bit, like butterscotch chips or coconut in the batter. I think it would also taste great with fruit and whipped cream on it. or ice cream

3/21 - I made this cake last Friday in a crunch because I just found out it was a friend's birthday and I didn't have any fancy ingredients on hand. It took so little time to put together and turned out spongy and delicious. My trouble was that the cake didn't slide out easily and the bottom part ended up sticking to the pan. I greased the pan well and baked at 350F for 35 minutes. Next time I will try lining the pan with wax paper and the addition of coconut flakes like two of the reviewers suggested. I also forgot to take a picture this time, will post one the next time I make this. Thanks for a wonderful recipe, MizzNezz! UPDATE 3/28 - I made this cake again today in mini bundt pans. I cut the recipe to 1/4th, added 3 tbsp sweetened coconut flakes, some toasted pecan pieces, and reduced the sugar to 3/4th of the amount called for (3/8 cup). This time I greased and floured the pans to prevent the cake from sticking. Baked it at 330F for 30 minutes and it turned out great.

This was really good, especially warm out of the oven! Next time I make it, and there will be a next time, I might try Candace28's coconut additon. Or, as my Mom suggested after trying it, topping it with a broiled coconut-nut frosting like that used for oatmeal cake.
