This cake has a wonderful texture..but it tastes MUCH better if you let it sit for a day before cutting it. I tasted it right after I made it,and it had a strange off taste...the next day, it tasted delicious. My son loves it...will be making this one again. Also, I had to bake it for an hour, not 45 min.
