    Jessica...I just wanted to thank you for sharing this AMAZING recipe!! I used a 13x9 inch pan instead, and it turned out absolutely delicious! My whole family loved it, and I will definitely share this recipe with everyone! Ps...the caramel frosting was to die for! I think I will use it as a dip for granny smith apple slices. Pps...in the ingredients, you don't mention baking powder, but in the directions you do. I used 1/2tsp...turned out fine. Try putting a slice in the microwave for a minute - yum yum  -  08 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    WHAT A JEWEL OF A CAKE. THIS IS A WONDERFUL MOIST CAKE. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS TO THE T AND YOU WILL NOT FAIL. ONLY THING IS. IF I WERE YOU I WOULD DOUBLE THE CARAMEL ICING RECIPE BECAUSE YOU WILL EAT 1/3 OF IT BEFORE YOU GET IT ON THE CAKE. I USED REAL BUTTER IN THE ICING INSTEAD OF THE FAKE STUFF. BELIEVE ME IT MAKES A DIFFERENT IN TASTE. THANKS FOR THE RECIPE.  -  26 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Very good! Everyone who has tried this has enjoyed it. I did add 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon to the cake for additional flavor. Also baked it in a 9 x13 pan for approximately 55 - 60 minutes. If you want to tone down the sweetness, top with whip cream or ice cream instead of the frosting. Delicious either way.  -  04 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
