Made this recipe as directed, & after baking for just about 42 minutes, I ended up with a perfect cake! The one unfortunate thing about making it was that my other half took most of it to share at work ~ However, the large piece I did cut for myself before sending it off, convenienced me that when PAC is over, I'll be making this one again just for us here at home!

Wow. This is such a delicious cake. It's so rich and moist. Unforuntately the middle of mine sank when I took it out of the oven, but it's still delicious. I had to leave it to cook for about another 10 minutes. Thanks!
