    this is a geat birthday cake I also vary it by substituting the cocoa with corn starch and adding a different flavouring like strawberry or orange yummy evry time  -  07 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great recipe for me, since it is vegan as well as soy-free (we know some highly allergic kids). I found it very moist and mild in flavour. I substituted a cup of white sugar with brown sugar(that's what I had) and to avoid cocoa, used zest and juice of half a lemon. Delicious!  -  07 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this cake following one reviewer's suggestion of omitting cocoa, using white and brown sugar and adding lemon. It was DELICIOUS! Here's a hint for feeding it to your family: don't tell them what's NOT in it! When mine heard 'no eggs, no butter, no milk' their faces looked like I had said it had liver in it. Thanks for a great recipe.  -  22 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
