Cake is great tasting. Had to bake in a 13x9 pan as my tube one was out on loan. In that size pan though it could of used more glaze, but otherwise a great tasting cake!
I think this had a little too much spice added in... and I preferred it without the glaze as it added even more spice to the cake.
This was just light light very heavy!Maybe if you whip the egg whites then fold into the batter.
