      Honestly I had a hard time deciding between a 4 and a 5 on this recipe as the cake is much denser than I usually prefer but with that said to make three layers and have them stand up to the weight and cutting this cake is perfectly dense. I do LOVE that it is not overly sweet in flavor. One suggestion is cutting back the baking time...I know ovens vary but even with me reducing the heat to 340 (due to dark pans) and baking 25 minutes this cake was still a bit overdone so my suggestion is to just watch the time and test your cakes after 20 minutes or so. Make sure you use parchment and if you use just a circle in the bottom make sure to grease/spray the sides as being a denser cake it needs to have a bit to easily remove from the pans. Overall a great cake and worth the extra effort to make one from scratch. Made for All You Can Cook Buffet.
