I’ve been baking this cake for years...I’ve made it with almond flavoring, lemon flavoring, I’ve used cocoa powder and made it chocolate...always comes out delicious! The only way it could be easier is if you could buy it readymade in the grocery store!

So great! Here’s what I did a bit different... no cinnamon and sugar topping, but 1T of ground cardamom added to the dry ingredients plus 10 drops of orange oil to the milk/butter. Baked in a Bundt pan... delicious paired with some herbal tea! Thanks for the basic recipe...I will keep playing with additions based on what mood I’m in! Very moist!

Made chocolate pudding and wanted something simple to go with it, but no cookies in the house. Mixed this cake up in about the time it took the oven to heat to 350. It baked while we ate dinner (baked about 40 minutes). Deliciously simple and the perfect accompaniment to chocolate pudding with a dollop of sour cream on top. Wonderful texture! Thank you for sharing!!

I added a few very thin slices of butter on top and let it melt before serving. What a hit!
