I give this 4 stars on the condition that you add an additional egg. I mixed this recipe and then read the reviews. Two stars! Oh no! I looked at some other recipes and I didn't see much difference except maybe more eggs, so I added another egg to the batter. It took a little over 35 minutes to finish baking, but I ended up with a cake that tastes just like it came out of a box - which is what this is supposed to emulate. My guess is that the other reviewers didn't use self-rising flour. Remember the recipe for self-rising flour is 1 cup AP flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp salt. Maybe the difference was the egg: anyway I got exactly what was advertised - within 5 minutes anyway.
I used the exact recipe this time (only 2 eggs) and it turned out as before - just as light and fluffy as a box cake. The cook time is still 35 minutes for me.
