This cake turned out very well on the first try. After reading a few reviews, I used margarine instead of shortening, reduced the baking soda to 2 tsp, and used a little less salt. Also added a hint of almond extract, and beat mixture very well. I baked in two 9" round pans, and baked for twenty minutes even. This cake only takes like an hour to cool completely on a rack! They came out of the pans super easily after less than five minutes. ( I use PAM Baking spray, already has flour in it and its great for everything.) Cakes were a little thin, and the crunchy edges needed to be trimmed, but lovely moist, fluffy texture. Trimmed edges still make a delicious snack, but I don't like it mixing with the fluffy texture of the cake, and I wanted a smaller cake. Filled it with low fat cool whip(A little less than half a tub) mixed with diced strawberries. Topped with more of the cool whip and sliced strawberries. Loved it!
