9 servings if baked in 8" square pan.
When adding milk either cover bowl with towel or put in sink, it will splatter no matter how slowly you beat it in.
If cake jiggles it is not done, you might have to lay a piece of foil over it if you think it is already golden brown, but still jiggles.
The knife in the middle test works fine, if it comes out clean then it is done.
good topped with a drizzle of caramel, whipped cream or mixture of coconut and pecans toasted in butter.
