Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Love to try this recipe, but I need the nutrition chart for my diet. can anyone help

Why are you reviewing cake recipes if you are on some kind of diet?????? Why are you NOT going to the diabetic section at top of this page?????

made it and it was a big hit. Does it have to sit for 8 hours?

Yes, once the first set of ingredients has been combined the cake should be left to chill at least 8 hours.

dont get .05 and .075

Good Recipe/I use it soup suppers at church. m. m. m. good.....

Why is this called " overnight " cake ???

Because in the recipe is says to chill at least 8 hours or...OVERNIGHT. Thus the name "overnight".

Can I substitute lemon juice for lemon extract and how much?

Hi Maryanna, You cannot substitute lemon juice for lemon extract. These are two different products used in different ways.

What can I substitue for the 1-1/2 sticks of butter? Would 3/4 cup applesauce do it? I am on a low fat diet but I do crave desserts at times. dak_72560@yahoo.com

Yes. Or any other fruit sauce, yogurt, Greek yogurt.
