My family enjoyed this cake. It was fairly easy to prepare. I did not have a spring form pan so I used an 8"x8" square pan. This was a sweet tasting cake that was wonderful with a cup of tea. It kept for several days in the frig. and the last piece was as good if not better than the first. It did only take 45 min. in my oven. Definitely a keeper! CandleLady9ah
