this cake was alright, but i found it very dry, and flavourless [i even added a little extra vanilla]. i dont know if i'll make it again.

I'm giving this recipe five stars because it was easily made vegan. While it didn't have a lot of flavor (I'll make a note to use more vanilla next time), the batter was a wonderful consistency and it baked and rose nicely. I made cupcakes and they turned out moist and fluffy. The icing I made was sweet and flavorful, so that made up for the miminal flavor in the cupcakes themselves.
