One word: AMAZING!
It's truly the perfect summer recipe! I would suggest two things if you decide to try this recipe yourself:
First, bake this cake in the morning while it is cooler outside (especially if you live in the south like me) as the cake bakes in the oven for 80-minutes. You don't want to heat up your house in the heat of the afternoon.
Second, The recipe calls for shortening. I don't have shortening in my house and didn't want to buy a huge container as the recipe calls for so little of it, so I used regular cream cheese as a replacement. It worked great.
Happy baking, my friends!
