Top Review by Geema

Sweet, moist and very delicious! The batter was easy to prepare really filled up the pan. Since I am not a master baker I followed the clear instructions completely, with the exception of adding a bit more cinnamon and some nutmeg as a sub for the pumpkin pie spice. Thank you Marie!
