I once made this recipe to take to a co-worker who was ill. When she got back to work, she told me her teenaged son had scarfed up the entire cake in an evening, then begged her to get the recipe from me. This is soooooo easy to make, and soooo good!

I found and baked this recipe today. I love cake and this one is awesome. It is moist with a fine crumb but firm enough to do anything with. I baked the single layer and used it for strawberry short cake. All I can say is YUMMMM!!!

Very moist cake- made it with freshly picked strawberries and everyone loved it! One tip, though- the cake tends to rise very high so make sure to use an 8" pan that has higher sides so you can still get the topping on.
