amygoostree 1 month agoNot sure what I did wrong but it turned out more like cornbread. When making a cake instead of cupcakes, it turned out really dense. It has potential but not sure how to correct the problem I'm having with this recipe. I even cooked it way less than the suggested time.
Hannahcain 1 month agoWas in a hurry and away from my usual cookbooks, hastily began this recipe for a character cake tin and was disappointed it did not quite fill (box mix does the trick). Only baked 20 min, finished moist and airy because I exchanged applesauce for sugar 1:1. Tastes fine. If you need a character tin or layer cake, increase 50% (i.e. 3 eggs, 2 1/4 c flour, etc).

Krusherkins 3 months agoThese are easy and so moist! Maybe bake them a bit less than the time given. My oven runs hot so 17-20 min was enough. Can't imagine others came out with dry cake! Delicious!

momtologankayleenmason 5 months agoI'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!

Jeanwgriffin 6 months agoMaybe 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.
