"This cakes takes only 5 minutes at the most to prepare, this is not a texture of a boxed cake but it does makes a great weekend brunch cake, some chopped apples, raisins, blueberries may be added into the batter for extra flavor, the egg may be omitted but the texture will not be as light, do not make this in one 8 or 9-inch pan the batter will run over the sides"
