Delicious! I halved the recipe to make an 8x8 cake. It is nicely spiced and tastes great. When I made it into 12 pieces they are 2 pts. each! I'll bet it's good with cool whip or ice cream! Thanks!
This cake is yummy! I followed the directions pretty much--I did use the egg-beater egg whites (didn't have enough eggs and it was snowing), so didn't get the nice fluff. It didn't matter. The cake was not too heavy or dense. It was nice and moist. I added 1/2 tsp of ginger and substituted half of the sugar for slenda. My husband, who is always leary of "diet food" liked it. in fact, he was sneaking pieces when I wasn't looking.
this is fabulous! I can not believe this was only 3 points OMG! I subbed 1/2 the flour w/whole wheat so I wander if that helps with points? hmm? I also glazed w/ about 2tbs of vanilla frosting. DELICIOUS thank you.
