We made this for our Fathers Day dessert. DH is a huge DP fan so DS thought this was the perfect cake. It really is delicious, but like other reviewers we didn't taste the DP in it. But, no matter cuz we fell in love with this moist flavorful cake. DH thought it tasted like a butter pecan cake. So good. Thank you for sharing with us.
