Recipe by Niki Z

I made this for a potluck and it was a huge hit, it's very moist and very pretty to look at! I almost didn't want to cut into it, but the delicious smell changed my mind!!

I made this for my Grandma's 86th birthday party. I topped it with a butter cream icing. I received mixed reviews some loved it, others thought it was just okay. It was very heavy, plus it called for A LOT of butter. I think in the future I would opt for a lighter recipe.
