Bravo ! Excellent coffee cake. Very easy to make. I added a tablespoon of shortening and an extra teaspoon of vanilla & butter extract for added moistness and flavor. Overall an A+ ! Works great in a mini toaster oven :)
It's just a matter of personal expectations, I guess, that account for the variation in reviews of this recipe. This is a basic, standard recipe for Dinette Cake that is quite common and has been around forever, so again, liking it or not is a matter of personal preference because there isn't anything "wrong" with the recipe. I didn't like it and won't tinker with it to make it better or different. It IS fluffy and moist, but it has a coarse, open crumb I found unappealing.
I have this thing about cooking with shortening, I hate it. So, instead I substituted Land-O-Lakes Light Butter, and the cakes (we made mini, individual heart cakes instead of one big one) came out absolutely delicious. They were fluffy and moist and had a lot of flavor.
Good texture if you do the following: cream the sugar and shortening together then add your egg and mix in your dry ingredients. The directions aren't too clear but that worked well for me. I also used butter flavored shortening too.
The cake turned out really fluffy, just like a cake made from cake mix. My family really likes this one. I would definately make this one again.
This was the perfect cake for a two person home. Very moist with the kind of thick, spongy texture I love. Went great with chocolate peanut butter frosting : )
I tried this recipe because it was the only one which I had all the ingredients in the house. This recipe made 18 yummy little cupcakes. They were a tad dry but frosting fixed that. This is a simple, economical, cheap, and tasty recipe.
My family really likes this cake. We make the cake and add fresh strawberries and some vanilla ice cream. It is our favorite strawberry shortcake.
