    The texture of this cake is similar to angelfood cake. Nice and light and "spongy". The topping...Oh my....sweet, gooey, buttery. For such a simple and easy cake, this is simply wonderful. I microwaved the milk and butter for the cake (1 minute on high) and microwaved the topping (2 minutes on high, stirred half way). Next time I will have to double the recipe...it was gone in 5 minutes!

    I was REALLY lazy when I made this cake and forgot to add sugar! Luckily I noticed in time...the cake was only in for one minute, so I took it out added the sugar and it still turned out delicious! The texture was great! I was unsure when mixing the batter if it was okay to have some lumps, but it turned out great so I guess the lumps were ok. Thanks for submitting..this is a keeper!

    I really liked this cake. It was very easy to make. I made it with half whole-wheat flour and half baking flour, and substituted soyamilk for milk (increase the amount if using whole-wheat flour). It was very tasty. We finished it off in a day. Thank you for this easy recipe.
