I was a little skeptical at first, when I saw that there was no water in this recipe, and the cake was very dense. However, the family just loved it, and every crumb was eaten. The only change I made was to add add enough water to the glaze to make is liquid enough to drizzle, and I topped the cake with quartered strawberries. This was a birthday cake for my dad, and he loved it. Thanks for making his birthday a sucess!
