      Wonderfully rich tasting and light cake. Often serve this with raspberry sauce and whipped cream or ice cream. Never a crumb left.

      this is a great morning treat! i used greek yogurt instead of the sour cream and it turned out great. I also put coconut on top. I cant wait to take it to work tomorrow.

      Wow! There is nothing "light" about the flavor of this cake! It is very rich and decedent. We all loved it! I substituted applesauce for the oil to make it even lower in fat, but I did use 2 whole eggs. You could also use this as a dessert cake. It is that rich! I cut it into 8 slices and that was plenty, even for the kids. Thanks for sharing the recipe for this moist, flavorful cake, Redsie!
