Folks really go for this light cake with fluffy cream filling. My son first tried this treat while in high school and asked me to get the recipe. I've used it countless times since for all sorts of occasions. It's easy to transport to a potluck because the cream is on the inside. -Peggy Stott, Lomax, Iowa

MY REVIEW

This is one of my favorite cakes. It reminds me of a big Twinkie! It's moist, flavorful and just plain delicious. Just be careful, once you start eating it, it's hard to stop.

I have made this cake many times, and it is always moist. Recently I added a layer of fresh raspberries on top of the cream layer, to give it a pop of flavor, then added the cake layer on top. Delicious!
