What a great cake this recipe makes. The small cake was light, tender and moist. We really enjoyed the flavor and texture of this tasty treat. Iced with a simple chocolate glaze it was perfect. Thank you for sharing your recipe katemonster8. Made for Spring PAC/12.
I wanted an easy white cake for my son's 14th birthday. This was a quick recipe. Plus I only had one egg in the house! I think my pan was too small, because it went over the top -- my fault, not the recipes. Every bite got eaten!
