I just acquired a Kitchen Aid for Christmas, with high hopes of improving my (novice) baking skills, and was excited about trying this recipe. And oh my word, it was delicious and oh so easy! I followed the advice of a reviewer and let the butter and sugar mix for ten full minutes, until it whipped and turned almost white (like dense whipped cream), and I'm glad I did, as the end result was a light, moist, and very tasty cake indeed. I did modify it and used all-purpose flour, replacing two tablespoons of the flour with corn starch (I had read about this substitution online), as I didn't have cake flour, and it still had a wonderful texture (also, I baked for 35 minutes in a 13x9x2 inch pan, as I only have one round cake pan). I have very limited baking experience, if I can make such a wonderful cake, then anyone can!
