The cake was moist, had a nice crumb and was just lovely.Thank youI really enjoyed this….I’ve eaten half the cake already!”

  • “This recipe turned out rich, moist, and delicious. I frosted the cake with cream cheese frosting. It was just the right size cake for my husband and I. Since it is just the two of us, I am always looking for recipes that are smaller tha average. This cake fits the bill. Great cake! Thanks”
