first of all i'd like to say, i've used many wonderful recipes from allrecipes and this is the first time i've ever left a review. this cake recipe is phenomenal and it's still in the oven! i've never baked a cake from scratch and i have never been inclined to eat raw cake batter, i could not stop licking the bowl! ok, i wanted to follow this one to a 'T' but I had to make some subs: didn't have milk so I used suggested amount half and half. also I didn't have cake flour nor a flour sifter so I used all purpose flour. eggs and half and half were cold (not room temp, as suggested by another reviewer. aside from that, i softened the butter (not marg) in microwave, creamed really well with the sugar, added eggs one at a time, added in vanilla and then blended in half and half. dumped in all dry ingredients, stirred with a spoon, then whisked for 5 minutes. it just came out of the oven and looks amazing. did i mention that the batter was outrageous?! i read all the other reviews and could not for the life of me figure out how people could get so excited over a cake! but now i know- im a believer, Scottley, you rock!!!
UPDATE: just had a piece... i will never used a box again!!
