“My gram considered this to be her "BEST" yellow cake...It was WONDERFUL! Try it, you'll LOVE it! My gram used chocolate frosting lots of times, and then sprinkled chopped walnuts all over the top. Sometimes she would use Grammie Bea's Special Vanilla Frosting instead... YUM! Keep in mind this is a "homemade" cake not a "box" cake. It has a heavy, moist texture a lot like Wacky Cake. Note: Don't over bake. Check cake at 30 mins. and every 5 mins. after, until a toothpick stuck in the middle of the cake comes out clean.”
12 really depends on the size pan you use
