Also, I used two 9" pans at 325 for 25 mins, not 3.
This cake is moist and delicious. I baked mine in dark pans at 325 for 25 minutes. I was unsure about the frosting calling for granulated sugar. It was very gritty at first, but when mixed with the milk & flour mixture it smoothed out. It was actually a bit runny and did not set up like the picture (of course!) but the flavor was amazing!!
The cake batter was very thick, and my cake came out very dry.
I just made the frosting, and it was WONDERFUL! I usually hate frosting, but this was great!
It's delicious. To make it more moist, after I let the cake cool, I poked wholes in each one with a fork. I mixed heavy whipping cream, condensed and evaporated milk, then poured it in each cake. Kind of like a tres leches cake. It was perfect.
