"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, or blueberries (fresh only) may be added into the batter for extra flavor. Be sure to use two 8 or 9-inch pans..there is lots of batter and will run over the sides if using just one pan"
