When making this recipe, please keep in mind that this cake is extremely moist. I made it this way so that it would give you a higher success rate of not having the cake stick to the pan. I make it with a 1/2 cup if I am presenting the cake to guests, and don’t want to take chances of it sticking to the pan. And if I’m making the cake for my family, I just use a 1/4 cup. I encourage you to try the different measurements and decide which one works best for you.
