So simple, so easy, my family couldn't believe it started off with a boxed cake. It was very moist. I plan on baking this for our Thanksgiving and Christmas family get togethers. Thanks Malinda for the great recipe.

Very good cake! So moist and wonderfully flavored! DH and DD really liked this cake. They both had seconds. DH kept taking bites and repeating the words "oh man"!
