Have made this twice. First time just as stated and the second time I experimented a little. Used 3 tablespoons lemon juice and subbed half of the butter for applesauce. Both times the cake was moist, dense and tasty. Did not use the glaze, am not too fond of glazes or frostings, besides, the cake did not need anything "extra". Thanks for posting.
