This recipe was okay. It is almost exactly the same as the Magnolia Bakery Vanilla Birthday Cake recipe, which I really like. I wanted a layer cake, so I doubled this recipe and split it into the two pans, adding the extra milk that others suggested. Given the amount of batter, it took around 45 minutes to bake the cake and it definitely had that cornbread texture/flavor. It was tasty but nothing like what I expected. If making a layer cake, I would suggest dividing the doubled recipe among 3 cake pans, as they do in the Magnolia recipe. It stays much moister because it is cooked a shorter amount of time.
