Rated 3 out of 5 by Han86 from Didn’t work for me This cake has 2 and a half cups of sugar which where I am from is over half a kilogram of sugar. 625g of sugar in one cake, and thats before any frosting/icing and fondant. I have a sweet tooth, yet this was sickeningly sweet. Despite the extra time I gave the cake to cook it still remained a little raw in the centre. It fell apart in my hands when i tried to remove it from the tin. I did however like how dense and soft of the cooked part of the cake and if it wasn’t for the over-sweetness, crumbliness and difficulty I encounted in cooking it through I would have given it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alta from Tastes great I was worried because every homemade cake I've tried tastes like flour. This was wonderful! I upped the salt to a teaspoon because of the reviews about being flavorless and it was wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by agavedesert09 from I always make this one I've made this several times for family and co-workers. It consistently turns out. It is dense but rich. I tend to need additional cooking time than the recommended times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SWTRMEWIFE from My go to cake I see some are having problems with the cake, I think you need to play with it based off where you live. When I lived in El Paso, Tx I used 5 eggs and my stove was gas, but now I live in North Carolina, I have to use 4 eggs and my stove is electric. We're in the military, so I'm constantly changing the way to make this cake. Each time I make it, it comes out amazing and the people I make the birthday cakes for love the moist flavors.
