  1. This cake is very good and very simple and quick to put together. I made it in a 15×10 jelly roll pan, which made the ratio of cake to frosting nearly even. Yummy!

  2. I made this cake today in a 9.5 x 13 glass baking dish and it turned out fantastic. I was looking for a simple and quick recipe and this one is a winner. The moisture level was perfect and the frosting was great too. Poured the frosting on the cake and a little help spreading it out, super simple. One pan cake and one pan frosting, just my style! My husband doesn’t like cake very much in general but he had two pieces after dinner tonight. He gives it a big thumbs up. I will definitely be making this cake again.
