I could probably given this all 5 stars, except... I poured the batter evenly into two 8-inch cake pans and while baking, it completely overflowed both pans lending that oh-so-lovely acrid, burnt, smokey smell to our home on what was supposed to be a romantic Valentine's Day dinner. I searched all the previous reviews, and evidently I am the only baker to have had this experience. (Lucky me!) So now, I hope to find my original recipe file box and see what might be different.
Otherwise my children have loved this cake for all occasions, and I did discover that once the butter & sugar (I always used granulated) were creamed, adding in the cooled milk/flour mixture and using the whip attachment made the frosting seem almost like fantastical whipped cream!
If anyone can respond to the pan size conundrum, I would appreciate it! = )
