No, you can see the batter consistency on the picture, it should not be runny, it's difficult to say what went wrong without details. - Alena

I just made this bcz I was looking to use up eggs and milk. My daughter doesn’t like milk, so I just told her it’s a vanilla cake. She loves it. I love the texture and the flavour. So happy I found this. I just used 1 1/3 sugar and only 5 tblspns butter. I wasn’t as meticulous with the mixing and blending and it still turned out great. Yay!!!

It took way longer to bake than the recipe said. It is in a 9 in. pan too. Maybe it should have gone into a larger pan to spread out more. I am still waiting for it to come out of the oven. I'm sure it will taste fine, but the baking time surprised me.

Use in a mold!

Guest
These were super easy and delicious. You're right, I had all those ingredients on hand. I had used my cake mold for something else and decided to use a Halloween Skull mold (Amazon cakelet mold). They came out in a great size for each person and super delicious. Thank you!!

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!

Perfect for a quick dessert!

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!!
