"So easy! And so moist! This will be my "go to" cake from now on. Mine also fell in the middle, but so what? (That part got a little extra frosting)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 29, 2014

"I made this to serve to my daughter who avoids gluten and white sugar. I used non-gluten flour and coconut sugar. It turned out very nice. I frosted it with TOH Glossy Chocolate Frosting recipe , and I used coconut sugar for that also. This cake turned out well with these substitutions. I will make this again."

MY REVIEW
