I'm giving this a 3 only because maybe I did something wrong - but I cannot imagine what that could be? Very dry, my buttercream frosting was great and I put a ton on it and the kids didn't notice, but was very disappointed, sorry!

Maybe it makes good cupcakes but as a cake it is too dry and dense. I tried it several times...I give up. If you need a sturdy dense cake this is it. If you want light and fluffy, keep searching.

I tried this recipe and the cake was very dense and dry, Thankfully I can make some kick ass buttercream frosting. Very disappointed oh well time to try a better recipe

Made as cupcakes, and I thought this came out ok, just a lot heavier than expected. Perhaps using cake flour rather than regular flour would make a difference? I'll try again in the future.
