I made the cake only - not the glaze, so this review is about the cake only. I did follow the directions for mixing the ingredients, and, as the other reviewer feared, I did get a mess. It's a lot easier to wash a mixing bowl than to wash a floor. The flavor of the cake, also, did not really wow me, but that may well just be me. Thank you for sharing this interesting recipe. My kitchen floor is clean now.
This was a simple, moist and delightful little cake. I did reduce the amount of oil and sugar with good success, although I confess I used a seperate bowl to mix the cake batter, simply because I was afraid of the mess I'd make if not. Also, I did not wait for the cake to totally cool before frosting and it worked just fine. Thank you Pansies for sharing the recipe.
