    " It was excellent "
    Cosmicmother ate it and said...
    I have been making this exact cake since 2002! I'm looking at my printed out copy from then, and remembered the mistake.
    I think the original submitter (Linda) made a mistake and it should read 2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp soda. That's why the cake sinks in the middle, because there is too much soda. So I have scribbled on the recipe to read:
    1 tsp. baking soda
    2 tsp's baking powder.
    And I only use 1-1/2 cups sugar
    3/4 cup oil.
    I've been making it that way for years, and it's perfect! :)
    I have it in the oven now, it's smells heavenly!
