This was an excellent recipe. The Rum Syrup was almost too sweet. so, I think I'll try it with only half the sugar next time. Also, although it was moist, I think undercooking it by about 5 or 10 minutes would make it ooey gooey moist. I love pecans. So, I double the portion of chopped pecans, it was awesome!!!
