This was definetely a good recipe, and for the most part moist. I think 50 minutes is a little too long, at least from my oven.

This was easy and delicious! I was just throwing ingredients together and it came out great. I did spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray and it came out easily. Thanks for a great yummy recipe!
