This recipe yields two cake layers that are incredibly moist with each bite, with a delightfully light & tangy cream cheese frosting and a sprinkling of walnuts for some crunch.
Editors' Note: Honestly, this has become one of my favourite things that has ever come out of the Bakestarters' test kitchen. It's incredibly moist, lightly sweet, and with an addictive layer of tangy frosting. I love it and I think you will too.
