great basic butter cake recipe! i actually experimented and made two cakes - one with 3 cups flour and the other with only two. i liked it with less flour as it was denser and very moist. as my family doesn't like super sweet cake (except for me), i only used 1 1/2 cups sugar for the cake and 1/2 cup sugar for the sauce. i also added a few tablespoons of cheap brandy and cooked the alcohol out of the sauce. to decorate the cake, i made fresh whipped cream with no added sugar as my frosting, garnished with berries. the cake was a lovely mother's day treat - thank you so much!
