  • I really enjoyed this cake, I did use all sugar, a little less than the recipe, and added a jar of cherries that I canned last summer, and it was divine. Thank you. - 7/18/10

  • I make a very similar recipe from Betty Crocker - always turns out great. I mix this recipe up by putting chopped nuts or coconut on top. We also cut this cake into 16 pieces (2"x2") - just enough to satisfy a sweet tooth. - 1/12/09

  • I would give it 5 stars, but I have not had made it yet, but it sounds delicious and easy. I think I am going to try making it with both splenda sugar and splenda brown sugar substitute. Whatever I can do to save some calories! - 2/1/08
