    Thought making this in three layers was too much work, so put in a 9x13 pan. Came out just great, and much simpler. Was a very moist tasty cake. Took to work & was a big hit with everyone. Will Definitely try again!!!  -  07 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I can't get enough of this cake. Everytime I bake it I add something different. Coconut, currants, walnuts, raisins. Also, I only use 2 cups of brown sugar and 3/4 cup of oil.  -  18 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fantastic! Everyone loved it. I made it in a 13"x9" pan instead of 3 layers and it baked up moist & delicious. It's a new family favorite.  -  25 Aug 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
