Does it get any easier than this? Easy, fast and homemade - a winner! I made mine in a large square tin (it took 36 minutes) This cake rises beautifully, is moist and morish. Thanks for posting such a great recipe!

Fabulous, moist, flavourful, simple. Used a large Pyrex bowl to make a 'dome' shape for a ladybug cake. Thanks for posting!
