This is the recipe that I have used for years! I do add 2tsp baking powder. Its sure makes a nice cake. Large enough as well. It also makes a great cake to carve for a party! Thanks
I have been using this recipe for years and it it a favorite for sure! My recipe for Recipe #218589 goes very well with this cake. It is sweet, but not overly sweet, and it is a great frosting for designs. After my cake is frosted, I often take the tip of a rounded knife and press down on the frosting and then pull away and it makes picks all over the top of the cake. Very pretty, especially with chopped nuts, sprinkles, Jimmys, or anything else you might want to add on top.
I grew up on this cake and love it! I usually make a mocha buttercream frosting, but it is good warm out of the oven with a little butter on top, too. I'm making it this weekend for a church picnic.
