Oh wow, I'm a happy woman now! I used to make this cake and lost the recipe in a recipe purge, (last time I do that!). The only difference is my recipe used raw sugar instead of the brown sugar. Thanks for putting the recipe up.
Mixed reviews in my house-- some liked it, some did not. I doubled the recipe and baked it in my bundt pan-- it was perfect after 55 minutes. I did not use any nuts and I did not frost it. Personally, I think a slice warmed up with just a bit of butter spread on it is wonderful. ;)
have made this cake a few times varying it everytime, either using all walnuts or none at all in cake except on top.used candied peel instead of lemon rind when i didn't have & have 0never used pineapple, just topped up banana & carrot quota. it's deeeeeeelicous! mostly it comes out very moist, i call it pudding-cake. this is a firm favourite, all who i've made it for have loved it but even if they didn't i'd still make it often & savour it alone one slice per day! THANKS!
Absolutely DELICIOUS!! Not sure what the previous reviewer must have done to this cake, but it was lovely and moist and gobbled up in about 5 mintues flat. Plenty of requests for the recipe too. Soooo easy to make, and the cream cheese icing just adds to the MMMMMMmmmmmm factor :) I'll definately be making this again soon. THANKS!
Ugh! This cake was horrible. It didn't rise, had bad taste and texture and would have made a better football for tossing. Unfortunately we served it for our daughter's 1 year old birthday party. (The last time we will try a recipe that doesn't have previous reviews.)
