    This is SO delicious!!! I made it into 32 cupcakes and baked for 13 min. then topped with a typical 7 minute icing. I don't have to eat GF, but I am going to be replacing my white cake recipe with this one from now on. Its a moist, just sweet enough cake - YUM!!! - 7/15/10

    Just started with Gluten Free recipes. I made cupcakes with this recipe and they were great. Made chocolate cream cheese frosting, next time I wil make plain vanilla or chocolate. Also used unsweetened shredded coconut versus flaked coconut and coconut oil in place of shortening. - 3/24/13

    Glad you enjoyed it. It is the most requested cake that I sell. I might have to try the coconut oil some time. Thank you

  • SO good!!! Next time I will try the cupcake version--the cake was crumbly but SO moist!! Cupcakes might hold up better than a whole cake though--I added a cream cheese frosting made with heavy whipping cream, agave nectar, and vanilla extract--it was the perfect amount of sweetness. - 12/21/11

    Sorry the cake was crumbly for you. I have been making and selling it for 4 years and never had that problem. Glad you enjoyed it. I haven't tried making it into cupcakes yet but have thought about it.
    Thanks for your ratings.
