This cake is a hot mess. I'm an experienced Baker and thus cake batter was groopy. It did not rise at all. As my dear, departed dad would say, "you could use this for a hockey puck." Someone needs to look at this recipe and figure out what's wrong.
I am a very experienced baker and followed the directions to the letter. This cake is a leaden mess. The batter was heavy going into the pan and appeared fallen after baking. The flavor was good and it is pretty, but that is all that I can say positive about this recipe. It needs working on. If it is one of your most baked recipes, I daresay it is a one off baking experience. I will never use this recipe again.
Let me tell you. This is the WORST recipe EVER. Whoever runs this page need to delete this IMMEDIANTLY. The cake didn't rise. The batter was funky and it was a waste of time and ingredients. Don't even bother looking at the page.
This was the worst cake I have EVER made, it did not rise, and yes the baking powder was fresh. What a waste of time and ingredients...
