      This is a delicous cake. I've never been able to just take a chunk of cake and eat it without frosting! I like that it kind of has an angel food taste and texter, but more dense. It's spectacular and it's the cake I've chosed to use for my daughters first birthday cake. I have made this twice, the first time I used the water as stated, and this time around (it's still in the oven) I used oil instead of water, hoping that it would be a little moister. Thanks for a great recipe!
