This was such a good cake. I made just one batch to try it and had to whip up another cake right after because my husband dug in and ate up most of the first cake! I didn't have any brown sugar in the house but I had a container of cream cheese frosting and it worked out very well! I will be making this cake again soon!

This cake got the Emergency Room staff seal of approval. I did find it very sweet, though, but according to my workmates, this would be great with custard as a dessert.
