How disappointing! I followed the recipe and the cake was flat! What a waste of money as it went in the garbage. Missing ingredients are the eggs - amount from the cake mix directions and use either oil (or) applesauce - not both.

This cake recipe failed for me. I followed it just as written and it came out of the oven flat.

I am FURIOUS!! Recipe has a mistake (as others note)! I was in a huge rush to find a "RED Cake" (as my son requested for his 5th birthday). I had no time to spare and copied this recipe and quickly made it. As soon as I put it in the oven, I had the feeling something was wrong. So I came back and read the other reviews. However, (after discarding the first cake), I re-made the cake WITH 3 EGGS and added 3 tablespoons of Chambord, and it was very tasty. The center still didn't rise as much as the edges, but it was usable when eggs are included.

This recipe was horrible! I wish I would have read the reviews before waisting the money to put this together!

Same thing happened to me......my son requested a red cake for his birthday, so I quickly made this recipe without reading the reviews. Cake was flat & had a very odd texture. Oddly enough, half the cake still was eaten, just not by me. Will never bother with this one again. I wish I didn't even have to give it 1 star.
