First off this recipe makes a LOT! I cut it back to 3 servings and planned to bake it in a pretty little casserole dish. Well, that 3 serving size filled a cake pan and will make 6 to 8 servings. I made this for DH with all the sugars ask for. He LOVES it and said to give it 5 stars and to say that he really wanted to give it at least 8. "It's moist and has a lot of great flavor" quote DH. Very simple to make and even though I set the timer for 45 mins it was fully baked when I checked it at 35 and could have come out at 30. Even if you make the full size cake do check it early just to be sure. Made for Photo Tag.
