Hi Jennifer

The first time I made this cake wonderful the second time the inside just wouldn't cook. What did I do wrong had it on the same temperature etc. Did I beat it to much? Thanks

I have to make this cake once a year!!! It was sooooo good, my husband and I felt so ashamed that we ate the whole thing. ( It took a week but we did) This cake was moist and good. I'll make this cake for the holiday, when there are more people around and I won't be tempted to eat it all. LOL.

Congrats on your blue ribbon. This recipe deserves it! I'm making it for the 4th time now, I just can't get enough. Do you ever try variations such as lemon, peanut butter or chocolate? I wonder how well that would work? Thanks for sharing!
