adw899 4y agoI liked this recipe alot, made cupcakes instead of cake. I would bake if doing cupcakes for 20 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. I would also add 1/2 cup of applesauce for a more moist cake.
nishaanup 4y agovery easy to make,i did make some changes though
Autumn1193 5y agoVery good recipe. I agree that it needs the amount of baking soda and I'm not a big fan of the icing recipe... other than that I love the taste and consistency of the cake
