Make the Most of This Recipe With Tips From The Betty Crocker® Kitchens
The slices of this cake are quite thick. If you cut the slices in half, you still get a lot of taste--just in a smaller portion.
This batter also bakes up nicely in layers. Bake two 9-inch layers 32 to 37 minutes, then frost as desired.
For a different look, we cut the loaves into wedge shapes.
