This receipe is super yummy. I covered it Cream Cheese Frosting and Poured Glaze over it. Then placed strawberries all around it. It held up so nice. Great cake for carving. And sooo easy to make. I will post my picture tonight! It was wonderful.

Wonderful - simple cake.. A lot like a pound cake, only easier, and slightly lighter, but lovely flavor... i added a tsp. of almond extract and a handful of shredded coconut and iced with my favorite buttercream icing the last time i made it( i have posted the icing recipe) - a definite keeper - Thanks!
