    Ms*Bindy's Note:

    I have not tried this cake yet. It is supposed to be moist and rich, but not overly sweet. I'm posting this for the Zaar World Tour. It's from a Moosewood cookbook.

      This really IS an awsome cake and it's very simple to make. My boyfriend called this cake "intoxicating". I used all yogurt and I did toast the walnuts, takes a bit longer, but well worth it in flavor. You could put candied lemon rind on top of each slice. This is from "Sundays at the Moosewood", a GREAT cookbook that I use often.

      This is a really sound recipe - made a few changes and it was very tasty and well received. I didn't have enough walnuts, so added some candied citrus peel, chopped glace cherries and dried cranberries. Subbed half a cup of flour with wholewheat. Used all yogurt. Followed the glaze recipe very loosely, based on the 'too sweet' comment, so it just added a hint more lemon and cinnamon to the initial aroma of the cake. I also made some in mini muffin moulds, which worked really well!

      Nicely spiced, moist, simple, and yummy... I used additional yogurt instead of buttermilk, and it was great. The glaze was too sweet for me, though! Next time I'll leave that part out.
