    We don't frost it! ha Didn't even think about that! ha It is more like a coffee cake or a sweet bread. Very dense.

    In your recipe it call for flour is that All-Purpose, or Self-rising? I guess it All-Purpose because it calls for baking soda, I'm I right? The recipe sound good and I'm going to make it as soon as I'm sure about the flour. I wish all recipes that calls for flour that it would say which flour to use. Thanks for your time!
