Notes

  • Do not over bake this cake.  Make sure to check it often after the first hour in case your oven runs hot.
  • When you bake, use a scale to measure your dry ingredients.  You will be shocked at the difference in the amount of flour and sugar you use. It really makes a huge difference in how your baked goods turn out.
  • Use high quality vanilla extract.  This ingredient will also make a big difference in your baking.
