    Excellent I would make it again I didn’t have vanilla extract so I used orange essential oil

    Found this recipe for my 12 and 10 year old grand-daughters because they wanted to make a birthday cake. They followed the directions except they added confetti sprinkles. The cake was delicious, one of the best I have had in a while.

    cake turned out good. fluffy but just a little too sweet. unless you like it like that i suggest halfing the sugar quantity

    The cake was denser than expected and almost bread like, but delicious and I received many compliments. The frosting was sweet, but not too sweet, which was perfect.
