Top Review by weekend cooker

Took this to a co-workers house for a dessert for the football game. Everyone enjoyed this cake. Added an extra teaspoon honey though. Only change made. One of the better cakes I have had in a while, as this was nice and moist and fluffy. We finished this at lunch today at work . Made for Recipe Swap #46.
