This is one of my favorite cakes...so moist, and has such a wonderful flavor...the brown sugar frosting just makes it that much more delicious. This is a winning cake recipe.

The cake was delicious. Reminded my DH of a spice cake but better. Everyone loved the icing, it really compliments the cake. I will be making this cake many times. Thank You!
