i made this cake for the first time yesterday. i made it for a 13 y/o boys birthday party..i used all purpose flour...huge mistake..as the cake cooled, it shrank. i mixed it too long with my elecric mixer...if i had mixed it by hand after i added the eggs i am sure i would have had a different outcome...i am going to make it again with cake flour next time..and i am sure it will be wonderful!! using the all purpose flour, it was way too dense..however it was very moist and not in the least bit "corn bread like". cake flour for any and all cakes is the key!! while i was disapointed, everyone else liked it and that's the big thing. the recipe does make one cake and 12 cupcakes. i used the cupcakes to sample before the party for those that couldn't wait to taste the cake...i gave this 5 stars because it was MY error..for not putting the mixer down..if i had follwed the directions, all would have been well. i will write another review after i use cake flour. baking and cooking is all about trial and error!! nothing more, nothing less!!
