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 cake today, loved it. Texture was wonderful. Will cut down the sugar though next time. Thanks for a great recipe.
