oggie981983 3y agoI love this cake I remove the coffee for dr pepper
amolarora 4y agoThe batter was very loose.My cake didn't cook.
lavioux 4y agoIf you like a frosting that is light and not very sweet this one is that, but it is buttery. The cake is fabulous.
Lynn1775 4y agoOnly improvement possible: pour batter into pan. Beat 8 oz softened cream cheese, 1 egg & 1/3 cup sugar, spoon over batter, sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake 45 min @ 350. No icing needed. Total chocolate bliss.
