“Finally tried this cake a few days ago after having it in a folder since 1981. It worked very well. I did not try it with the frosting since I served it as a simple snack cake to pack in lunches. I do believe I am in love with no-bowl cakes! I baked this in an 8 inch square pan and it needed the 35 minutes in my oven.”
