I'm undecided between 3 and 4 stars. I thought the taste of the cake was good, but it was very dry. However, my husband and I unfortunately had left our oven on broil from a previous cooking activity, so while the temp of the oven was correct, the cake began its baking with the heat source coming from the top. This might have dried out the cake, but not sure. I will try this cake one more time, but I recommend a very similar cake on this site called "Incredibly Delicious Italian Cream Cake" which is very moist and tastes great. These two cakes have different ingredients but very similar tastes--the Italian Cream Cake is better though.
I baked this cake in 3 9-inch rounds for about 30 minutes and then used the Buttercream Frosting II recipe from this site to frost the cake and that was a very nice accompaniment. This is a very easy cake to prepare and clean-up is incredibly fast. You end up only needing to use one measuring cup size and only two sizes of measuring spoons, so it's quick and easy.
