My husband has told me I'm not allowed to use a box mix anymore after making this recipe! The only mistake I made was overfilling my cupcake tins :(. I used butter instead of shortening. GREAT RECIPE! I didn't realize making a cake from scratch could be so easy.

Perfect. I made this with canola oil instead of shortening and added some cinnamon. It was easy and quick to prepare and came out moist and delicious.

Great! Didn't take 5 minutes to put together, baked up beautifully (took a little longer.) was very easy to remove from the pan. Tastes great filled and topped with a milk chocolate ganache.

Delicious Cake! Doubled Recipe for larger pan. Filled with Strawberry Cream Filling. Very thick & dense- yet also very moist. Thanks for sharing!

Great cake! Very moist, but baked a bit longer then 35 minutes, cause the top hadn't browned.

Loved this recipe! Almost as easy as a box but without all those unnatural ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly but made cupcakes (baked between 20 and 25 minutes). Next time I will probably throw in a little more vanilla and may sub half of the shortening with butter... Thanks!

I followed the recipe exactly and the cake tasted fair- It didnt rise correctly. I am going to try this again with fresh baking powder ( the date on mine is still good but you never know) Swan's Down Cake Flour.

I looked up so many recipes for a good yellow cake mix and this one was PERFECT! I didn't adjust a thing and it was quick, easy and the consistency made a delicious coconut cake. Everyone raved over it. I would definitely use this recipe again!
