Notes about this recipe

    This cake was just ok. It was done in the minimum time and had a strange shape, one side having risen twice as much as the other side. Also, there was a valley around the perimeter of the pan. The texture was ok despite the strange way it baked up, however, there were quite a few tunnels in the cake. I was concerned because the batter was runny—almost like pancake batter. The batter was also filled with tiny air bubble, something I’ve never seen in cake batter before. The flavor was kind of bland. I think one reason is that instead of a cup of butter, it was half butter and half oil. The frosting was good but not as good as the Foolproof chocolate frosting, also from ATK, which is the gold standard.
