Simple White Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
I hate it when people write these heated, rude reviews when they dislike something. It seems so negative! I'm just going to be honest. I baked this cake for my husband's birthday, and since the ratings were so stellar, I expected big things. I didn't overbake, I followed the recipe exactly. The cake turned out extremely dense (not always a bad thing), and DRY... bad combination. He ate it, the flavor wasn't bad and I didn't taste too much baking powder in the after bite, which is positive... but the consistency of the cake was not at all what I envisioned. It was extremely dry and thick. I would try adding extra milk or perhaps a tiny bit more butter to help things out if you're going to go with this recipe. Try it first before you serve it at a gathering or an important event. The cake was pretty OK once I microwaved it and ate it warm... but who does that at a birthday party? At any rate, I usually go with what most people say, and I was surprised that I disliked the recipe. This is NO offense at all to the creator, and again I'm not some jerk trying to bad mouth a recipe. Just being honest!
