This cake takes some work, but let me tell you upfront… it’s worth it! It’s so good and probably in my top 5 for my favorite cakes. It’s the perfect cake for any holiday gathering and everyone who has ever tasted this classic loves it! Be sure to add this to your recipe list.
Cake Baking Tips: Always follow the recipe and do not open the oven door 10 times while the cake is baking as this may cause the cake to fall. Check the center of the cake with a toothpick to see if it’s done. Ovens vary. Blend just until all the ingredients are incorporated. Over and under mixing can result in cakes having a chewy texture.
