Top Review by PsychRN

Great recipe! Have made this one several times and it always turns out moist and delicious. The only change I make is to add 1 teaspoonful of cinnamon to the cake batter and I add 1 teaspoonful of instant coffee or espresso powder to the icing. It's also a quick, easy cake to stir up.
