The first cake my daughter ever baked ... a family favorite and too easy since you start with a mix!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Teri’s mention that this is the first cake her daughter ever made inspired me to get my grandson, Connor, involved!  He and I have cooked together since he could walk and it's a really precious time for us.  We had a ton of fun preparing this recipe together, and the finished cake was a big hit with the entire Kitchen Crew!

Thanks for sharing this! I've pinched this recipe a while ago, so I've made this cake several times and everyone loved it! I have made a similar version of this, to mix things up a bit. I love chocolate, so I changed the cake & pudding mix to a chocolate fudge cake mix & chocolate instant pudding mix and then added Heath toffee bits (about half a bag). Then made the cake with the rest of ingredients and it turned out awesome! My husband and daughter loved it! Just wanted to share that and to let you know how much we loved the recipe!

Eileen, is your oven calibrating properly? I had an oven that was actually 50 degrees hotter than the temperature gauge. I didn't know it until I used an oven thermometer and checked it myself.
