    Robbie Johnson from ANCHORAGE, AK

    My family & friends thought I had spent all day making this dessert. It wasn't that difficult to make. They loved it. I also tried it with strained raspberries. Some liked it better with the strawberries & others liked it better with the raspberries. Now I make 2 cakes and 1 batch of strawberry sauce & 1 batch of raspberry sauce

    mm good

    lori kelly from augres, MI

    I dont think there was anything in this recipe that anyone in the family didn't like,one likes peanut butter,one likes strawberries,one loves chocalate. It wasn't that hard to make whitch is a plus with my hectic schedule. I also love the moist cake (some home made cakes tend to be dry)so I gave this cake a 4 worth the making.
