    Though it looked like cake, it certainly did not taste like it. The consistency was dence, the vanilla flavor was not really there either. I'll try it once more, perhaps add a 1/2 tsp more of Vanilla.

    Worst cake I ever made. Put in for minimum time in directions and was way overcooked. Will NOT be making again. If I didn’t have to put at least one star, I’d give it zero.

    Perfectly spongy and the level of moisture was just what you want in a basic vanilla cake. If you are looking to graduate to the world of cake baking this is a great place to begin your journey.

    Followed the measurement as directed, found the batter thicker so add some more milk to get the right consistency. Took roughly 50 mins to bake. Adding pics.

    Except for the fact that the top and edges of the cake burned, it was delicious.

    Good, I suggest adding a hint of more milk to make the batter creamy and the cake moist. Other than that great flavor and delicious.

    Very fluffy and the taste is just amazing! My entire family loved it! The only thing is not to keep it too long in the oven, i kept it in for about 32 minutes and it got a little burned, but it was still delicious. Totally Recommend 😊

    Very, very good! Ours didn’t rise like I had hoped, but the taste was beyond amazing! It didn’t matter that it was a little flat.
