We have made this cake twice and it comes out deliciously moist and flavorful each time. The icing recipe works quite well also. Highly recommended to those who are gluten intolerant and are seeking a moist cake that is way (!) better than GF box mixes.

I made this cake last week and it was the best gluten free cake I've ever had! My husband, who is not gluten free, even loved it and said it's one of his favorite cakes.
