Moist and delicious!, Member griffville

I added an extra 1/2 tsp of vanilla because I wanted more flavor. I made cupcakes instead of a cake. Cupcakes - bake at 350 degrees for 23-24 minutes. Come out with perfect domes and are moist and delicious. This recipe is a keeper. I'm sooo glad I found it!
