I'm giving this recipe 4 *s because this cake was light and tender and had a wonderful flavor, even though I had some difficulties with the recipe. At the 40 minute mark I removed the cake from the oven and allowed it to cool as recommended; it was a lovely golden brown color and felt cooked when touched. When I turned the cake over onto the first plate there was alot of cake stuck on the bottom of the pan, so I scoped it up and distributed it evenly over the cake. When I turned the cake over onto the second plate, the top portion of the cake had stuck to the other plate, exposing uncooked cake batter, so I returned it to the oven and frosted with a delicious Butter Creme Frosting - recipe 319336. I will try this recipe again hectorthebat, making sure to cook it longer next time. Thank you for sharing your recipe. Made for Pac 2011.
