This is a very good cake, I can't believe I hadn't rated it before now, I originally made it for one of my Christmas 2009 desserts, it was a major hit. I had family and friends asking me for the recipe during dinner.

I made this cake for a family cookout today and it was a big success. I rate this cake a 10. Delicious!!
