I made this cake and took it to work today. It didn't last very long. Gave the recipe to four people. EVERYONE loved this moist, tender treat. Will make again regularly.

Jackie, I am sure she means just regular flour, otherwise she would have specified..I made the cake before, and when I saw just flour, I used flour, just plain flour..lol

Made this to serve Bible Study group last night. They all loved it and want the recipe. Some of those gals are fantastic cooks so I consider the compliments noteworthy. I made the recipe exactly like it is listed and it was a huge hit! Thanks for sharing a tested fav of yours.
