      I thought this was a fun breakfast twist on dessert. It was certainly easy to make and my family loved it. I think I'm going to take this to my next office brunch party.

      This is a good substitute for an ordinary cake and is super easy to make. Very tasty. Ninety percent of the flavor comes from the frosting but I thought the pancake mix provided a good texture. While not as light as an ordinary cake, it does rise considerably while baking. Be aware of the high sugar content.

      I made this for a holiday gathering because I had all of the ingredients, it was quick, and it was easy. My friends and family loved it. I used a store brand mix and almond milk. I will definitely make it again.

      Made this recipe tonight and felt like something was missing.. didn't have the cake like consistency and was bland. The frosting was delicious, but could not save this dense cake!
