This is one of my favorite cakes… it’s moist and light yet so satisfying. I’ve been adapting it for years and now it’s almost guilt-free. —Pam Sjolund, Columbia, South Carolina.

MY REVIEW

"I don't get what all the fuss is about. I made this for my family of 4 plus my mother-in-law who was visiting. None of us thought it was anything special. It was okay, but I can't see that I'll be making it again."

"On my gosh, is this wonderful!!! Refreshing and so tasty! My Group loved this, ate it up within 5 minutes. This is a definite keeper.....in answer to Marykauhi, I just used the small package of Jello Instant Pudding.......I think that 1 oz pkg is a typo. Try this!!!!!! I'm not a fruit type dessert fan, but wow, is this yummy!!!!"

"Light and delicious and a hit with everyone who's tasted it. I prefer to make the topping with regular instant pudding instead of sugar-free, so there's no hint of an aspartame aftertaste..."
