    My family came for a family reunion and I ended up making this cake 7 times during a 4 day period. It was easy and everyone loved it. It had a good texture. I jazzed up the flavor by adding a seven up and powered sugar glaze.  -  07 Nov 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is the BEST! I put 1-1/2 tsp. of lemon {I like the flavor} and 1/2 tsp. vanilla, instead of 1 tsp. each flavoring. The texture was dreamy, as was the taste. Left it for 1/2 an hour to cool, and it came out perfectly. Cant say enough about it. Thanks, Sandee  -  19 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This cake is so moist. But make sure you let it cool in the pan for at least 30 minutes before you remove from pan and let cool completely before placing any cover over it. This cake is always a hit!  -  14 Jan 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
