To all the folks who thought the cake was on the dry side, how are you measuring your flour ? Do not dip your cup into the flour....always spoon lightly into the cup, then level the top. Too much flour can make a big difference, even several tablespoons. I adjusted this recipe slightly ....added 1/4 cup vegetable oil, added 1/2 t. baking soda and reduced baking powder to 11/2 teaspoons...and added 1/3 cup sour cream as part of the milk measurement. The resulting cake was so moist, so light, so wonderful. I also salted the pecans which I sautéed in a skillet with the butter. My guests love the salty sweet flavor profile. Huge huge hit at the restaurant where I work.
