Notes about this recipe

  • Rutabaga on January 21, 2018

    There were some issues with the cake, which I think had primarily to do with my baking pans and the fact that the batter wasn't quite mixed thoroughly in one spot. My cake pans are dark, and in this case, that middle of one of the cakes turned out to be doughy inside even through the edges were nicely browned. This was the cake that also had a portion of batter that wasn't quite mixed in the center, so I can only really blame myself. I cut out the doughy part and manage to put a presentable cake together with the aid of much frosting. The flavor was quite good and the cake was nicely moist, so with better mixing and better pans, it would definitely be worth making again.
