      Wow! What a lovely little cake! Light with a nice even texture and good flavor. A bit crumbly, but I'm going to save the crumbs to top muffins, etc. We had it last night for dessert with coffee. This one's going to be a real standby.

      Great recipe! I also used butter, and I doubled the recipe, baked it in a 13x9 pan for 35 minutes .. It is simple to make and took me less than 10 minutes to prepare .. thanks for posting!

      Simple but delicious. I used butter for the fat and Splenda's new baking mix instead of the sugar. Served the cake plain while slightly warm. Thanks Heather!
