    This is a new favorite! Moist and delicious. I made this in 2- 8" rounds and frosted with my light cream cheese frosting. Winner! - 5/10/12

    Very Good but had to bake it longer. 25 minutes wasn't long enough. The toothpick test did not work. It came out clean but after the cake had cooled the middle was still raw. Had to put it back in the oven. - 2/5/11

    Sorry, typo. Edited it. It is 1 cup. I'm not sure if previous reviewer used it or not.

    There is 1 c. skim milk. My apologies, again. I think it's stupid how you enter all of the ingredient info to calculate calories, but it doesn't transfer over to the ingredient list. What a pain!
