This cake is moist, but let it sit, covered for a couple of days before serving and it will get moister as the flavors meld even better. It keeps very well for a week in the fridge and for weeks in the freezer, making sure to wrap tightly in heavy duty foil. To defrost, unwrap and leave to room temperature. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top if you like.

I slice it and freeze individual slices for lunches or a quick snack.
