I give this recipe 5 stars because for the ease of making, great taste and texture, you just can't beat it! My mom always made this when I was a kid. She would sprinkle confectioner's sugar on and that is how I serve it, as well. I made the 9x13 version today and cut it into squares and froze it for quick snacks for my children. Next time, I am going to bake cupcakes to freeze so that I can pop them in their lunchboxes for special treats. I love that you can mix this in the pan, that it is very inexpensive to make, and most of all, that it really tastes fantastic. There is no reason for me to buy a boxed mix again! This is just as good and is fine for kid's birthday cakes. I made a couple of substitutions: I bake with a mixture of 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 wheat flour. I also used 1/2 milk and 1/2 water to make it more nutritious. I have never tried it with the coffee, but plan to try that sometime. I think with coffee as the liquid and a rich frosting, this would also be fine as a grown-up dessert for company. LOVE this recipe! (Also thinking it could be scaled down to be a "cake in a cup" recipe for the microwave...although it's so easy it's worth just making it as is!)
