The first time I made this cake, about a year ago, it was fantastic. It was moist, with a fine dense crumb. The last 3 times I've made it, it just do sent come out right. This most recent try I used Duncan Hines white cake mix. I do see on the box it is now 16.25 instead of 18.25. Mb that makes a big difference. This time the texture was completely off. It was not dense, it was semi dry and tasted more like an angel food cake. It also had holes in it throughout. Nothing at all like the first try. So I can see how this cake is getting so many differing reviews. So I will try next attempt with Betty crocker or Pillsbury and adjust liquid to the smaller amt in box mix. BTW, the first time I followed recipe to a tee. I'm also going to see if I can find the site I originally found this recipe and make sure I'm not forgetting anything. Very frustrating, because the 1st time was awesome, and I just can't seem to get same results. I will update this after I have experimented using different brands of cake mixes. Hope I can fix it.
