"I am 71 and this was my favorite cake growing up. This was the base for our strawberry shortcake. My mother also made it with a maple fudge frosting which I loved. When I started to make it at age 10, my mother couldn't understand why mine always tasted better than hers. We found out why, years later, when I discovered that I had mis-read her recipe and was adding twice the butter! To this day, I still mis-read her recipe.....yummmmm."
"My mom had made this cake for many, many years, it was one of her recipes, that relatives new she would bring to a shower, or to a special family gathering. She made a hot brown sugar sauce for the topping on the cake. for an after Sunday dinner desert, or sometimes with boiled frosting ..... We were always wondering, when she made it , was this cake for us, or was it leaving the house.....comfort food from our childhood I guess."
"Simple and delicious! Simply delicious! Definitely a keeper, I followed this recipe to the T and it is fabulous. We will enjoy this for many years to come."
"Great Cake, works every time, now make it as muffins as everyone wants more, makes 24 so enough for everyone"
"This is an excellent cake for a pineapple or peach upside own cake. Not too heavy, and it makes enough batter for two cakes. Or make the second cake into something else, like Boston Cream Cake."
