This cake is all it's cracked up to be. I followed the cake recipe with just a few adjustments: (1) for half of the flour, I substituted whole wheat flour; (2) for half of the sugar, I substituted brown sugar; (3) I used white vinegar mixed with milk instead of buttermilk (1 1/2 T vinegar, plus milk to equal 1 1/2 cups, then let sit for 10 minutes); and (4) I added 1 tsp orange zest. Following the baking instructions, it took 75 minutes for the toothpick to come out clean. The freezer thing felt weird, but I did it, and I wouldn't do it any other way in the future. The cake was so moist and delicious! There is no doubt in my mind that I will make this again. My husband and I both loved it!
Since I was only doing a 13x9 cake, I halved the frosting recipe, and that was just the right amount. I'd only do the full frosting amount if I were doing a layer cake.
