This cake was horrible, followed everything but it did not come out good. I used to use this recipe from the book years ago but the recipe has changed and NOT for the better. very dissapointed. tasted dense and too much flour. Tasted like corn bread or a dense pound cake. not light and fluffy. stay away! wasted too much time.

This is the cake recipe I use for my crumb cake. The best.

This is my go to small dump cake. I vary it by making it a pineapple upside down cake, apple cake with a can of apple filling and some cinnamon, switch out 1/3 farina or masa for 1/3 of the flour and soak a little simple syrup over it. The possibilities are endless. I have at least 4 BHG cookbooks and this is the recipe I have made the most.

I found a recipe with the same name in an old BHG Cookbook. it's similar, but the measurements are all different (less sugar, more flour, more fat). I'm curious why it was changed. the old version is pure perfection.
