    HeidiSue's Note:

    A friend made this delicious cake and I had to have the recipe. I have not made it yet, but plan to in the very near future! It's from Cooking Light 1999...though I'm not sure what is "light" about it.'s rich and decadent. I guessed on the time to if you find it to be very different please let me know and I will update!

      I made this for my family's Thanksgiving dinner desert. Gotta say it went over really well. Now, a few "technical" details. The instructions call for salt but there is none listed in the ingredients list. I added a pinch just to bring out the spices a little better and it was good. I also added some dried cranberries that I chopped...about a half cup. I also candied some chopped pecans and put them on top of the whole thing. I agree with the submitter...there really isn't anything "light" about it - but with a taste this good who cares?
