I have a suggestion based on when this cake was made for my birthday: DO NOT put on loose powdered sugar if it is to be a birthday cake! Makes quite a mess when candles are blown out! It is quite delicious without the extra sugar.
This is a wonderful cake! Moist and very unique taste. Everyone that tries it loves it! Most of the time I don't even put the glaze on top because it is just as good without it.
I have this recipe but we call it Kahlua cake, and it is excellent! My very picky teenager asks for it often - could it be the liquor?
