This is a simple one layer cake made with ingredients we usually have on hand. Better than a cake mix, doubles easily for a two layer cake. Perfect for when you need a quick simple dessert with very little effort. Perfect as a short cake with any fruit, ice cream and whipped topping. Original recipe.

I have a lot of plans for this little cake in the future! I can't wait to try some fruit shortcakes when the peaches and berries come into season. I think it would also make a delicious trifle. The size is perfect, especially if there are only a couple of people in your house, and you don't want a huge cake sitting around. The frosting is also good, lots of variations can be made with this recipe. It is a keeper for me! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
