I have mixed feelings about this cake. It is very, very moist. It gets a wonderful brown crust on the outside. Inside however, lacks flavor - I just think it needs more sugar and vanilla. The texture is moist but coarser than a box mix - just as a homemade cake should be. If you like a slightly sweet cake or you plan to use it in a recipe like pineapple upside down cake where the sugar sinks into it a bit this would be a great one to use. With only icing on top the contrast between very sweet and very bland is too much.
It also rises a lot or I have very powerful baking powder - so watch how much batter you put into your pans. I had a pan that usually uses 2 cups of batter and it overflowed all over as did the cupcakes when filled slightly over 1/2 full.
