    I make this cake yesterday. Use all-purpose flour instead of cake flour and 1/2 cup of sugar less. The texture was very nice which is soft and moist. Taste just like the cake that my mom bake 30 years ago.  -  28 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I've made this cake many times now. Its easy to make and delicious too. It is very sweet but when I tried making it with less sugar it didnt taste quite as nice.  -  15 Dec 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
