Really this is an excellent recipe!!! I had no problems with the cake's consistency & thought the directions were dead on!! I like to bake with both yogurt and cottage cheese...perhaps this is what may have confused another reviewer (???)- I adored the taste of the lemon juice and zest in the batter (!!!) and the brown sugar/ cinnamon/ pecan mixture throughout is simply heavenly!!! I followed the directions exactly as stated by RasberryCordial (even though my nature is to fool with things) and I'm so glad I did... I would not change a thing!!! A wonderful cake recipe to discover at the end of the ZWT3 game...sometimes the best of things ARE saved till almost last!!! I thank my team mate so much for sharing this delicious gem!!! This is a winner!!!
