It was very good. I didn't have brandy, so I ended up adding 7Up to it. It was nice and moist and just the right density. I made a simple glaze with milk, vanilla, and powdered sugar, and put it on right after I got it out of the oven. Then I served it with some kiwi slices and a cherry, which complemented it perfectly. Very, very good.
