Super!! I made two of these to be auctioned at a benefit. They went for much much MUCH more than I had ever dreamed. The cake rose so beautifully and came out of the cast iron skillet like a charm. Thanks for a simple to make wonderful recipe that really made me look good.

Excellent! I used no-salt butter instead of margarine (I didn't have enough margarine on hand) and when I first turned it out on the serving plate I thought the brown sugar topping was going to be a little mushy, but when it cooled down it was just perfect. Came out of the skillet very slick and was absolutely gorgeous. I added a couple of tablespoons of maraschino cherry juice to the cake mix which pinked it up a little and helped carry the cherry flavor throughout. Thanks!

Great cake! So impressive yet so easy to make! I used 8" cake pans and got 2 cakes out of it. I froze one cake after it was baked. When I was ready to use it, I defrosted it at room temperature and then baked it for 20 minutes to get the juices flowing again!

Oh, Java, this was soooo good! Followed directions exactly, except I had a couple of pineapple slices so cut them into small pieces and put in the cake batter. It came out of the skillet as slick as a whistle and looked beautiful. It was a big, big hit with our weekly card get-together. Had to give out the recipe. Thank you for posing it.
