This cake turned our great even though I made some changes to fit the ingredients I had on hand. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream since I had left over yogurt that I needed to use up. I also used all brown sugar as I had just run out of white sugar. I omitted the coffee, walnuts, and chocolate chips, and served it without frosting. The texture was wonderful! It was very moist, yet somehow still light and spongy. There's also a good flavor without being too sweet. I will definitely be making again!
Fantastic cake!! Husband liked it too. will definitely be making this one again. When it came out of the oven hot, I topped it with choc. chips and let them melt then spread them, for the icing. thanks Carol
Brought this cake to a Canada Day BBQ - didn't get a chance to have a real piece (the kids jumped on the cake!!) - had some crumbs... and tasted delish!! Thanks Kit! Can't be easier than this!! :)
