I thought this was very good. And a very good idea, too, having a generic sort of cake recipe like this. I halved the recipe and baked it in an 8-inch square pan. I did the spice cake and added 1 tsp each cinnamon and allspice. I used 2 eggs and 1/3 cup milk because I wanted it more eggy. I also just eyeballed the shortening, using what was left of my crisco. It was a bit more than 1/4 cup, I think. I used a bit more sugar, too, reading one of the reviews but that made it a touch too sweet. It baked up with a nice crumb, a light and tender cake. I wouldn't say it was dry, but I was hoping for a moister cake. I will definately use this again. Next time, I'm going to add some applesauce to the spice cake and I think that'll be perfect. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper for sure.
