Absolutely wonderful recipe. Easy to make and ingredients that I always have on hand. The batter for this cake is very thick. The first layer is easy enough to spread, but I would recommend for the second layer to drop spoonfuls evenly over the first layer to make it easier to spread. This was so good that I made it twice in one week. I took one to work and it was gone before lunch. I took the second one to a Stampin' Up workshop and everyone there loved it too. I had at least a dozen people ask me for the recipe. Made for April 2011 Aus/NZ Swap.
