I tried this recipe last week, and it was very good. It was light and moist. I liked it because it just makes a small amount. The recipe says it makes six, but it made eight for me. It is definitely not a Weight Watcher recipe. Arlene/Mo.

I made this recipe to take to a pot luck dinner, and it was very good. I think most everyone liked it, and my great-grandchildren loved it. It makes a big cake, so if you have a small family, you might want to try and cut the recipe in half. Arlene/Mo.
