A box of Betty Crocker yellow cake mix is a key ingredient in this moist dessert with a homemade taste. It’s not too sweet. Although delicious warm, tastes better cold. Excellent with or without frosting. Very easy to make. See recipe video posted on Facebook.
Perfect for when you don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. While my cake was baking, I edited recipe photos! Time well spent.
I used 1/2 cup of margarine instead of 1/2 cup of vegetable oil as called for in the original recipe by The Midnite Baker. Vegetable oil works well. However, margarine adds more color and flavor in my opinion.
Replaced almond extract with vanilla simply because I wanted a vanilla pound cake. If desired, substitute with your favorite extract.
I love cooking and baking in cast iron cookware because of the even heat distribution. Plus, it will last for years with proper care.
Always use heavy pot holders or towels when handling hot cast iron cookware (or any cookware).
