1234 Cake

"This is a recipe that my grandmother passed on to my mom and me. We use it for a birthday cake, or put jam between the layers (if you make it into layers) and frost it with white icing."

    I use a sheet cake pan for this, The cake is very flavorful. One thing watch it close the last few minuets of baking, Use the knife method to test it, Insert a knife half way to the center, if it is clean the cake is done, I also like to use a brown sugar icing for this.,

    If you put the batter into a loaf pan, as mentioned in the recipe, use 2 loaf pans or the biggest loaf pan in the world. I used one loaf pan, and as the cake rose, it spilled out half of the batter in my oven.

    This tastes great! I have used this recipe and turned it into a pineapple upside cake. Yummy!

    This is very similar to a cake my mom made for our family. It is easy and tastes great. We had it plain and with a milk chocolate frosting.

    Wow wow great recipe i used it to make cop cakes they are in the oven right now i can't wait. They look like gold and very Delicious Too ??. I had to stop typing this comment to take them out of the oven. And they turned out pretty good but I didn't taste them yet. ?? Hope they taste as good as they look ?? Maybe I baked them too long, is that why they look like gold? ??
