This cake is so very good! I had made this a month or so back while on a baking spree. I ended up freezing partial or whole loaves of bread, cakes, rolls, etc. This one was so very very good on its own fresh, no glaze here! I froze the other 3/4 of the cake for a later time, to just pull out in 4ths. It was even BETTER after being frozen and thawed a day in the fridge! This is one of the best cakes I have made.
