Nice but a bit dry! I baked for 60 minutes. And should have removed sooner. I added 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Nuts would be great in this. Maybe if made into 2 layers and baked for 30 minutes with frosting in between the layers would be the way to go. The frosting I did use 6 ounces of cream cheese using 1 1/2 cups sugar. Interesting!
