DH made this for his annual Easter pig fest! And boy was it ever a hit! I did not eat it because of Passover diet restrictions, but it smelled amazing and according to the people who inhaled it, moist, spicy, wonderful!
A simply delicious cake! Very easy to make, moist with the hidden surprise layers of nuts, brown sugar and coffee. My son-in-law, after his second piece, said, "Mom, you've got to keep this recipe handy". I will do just that! Thanks for posting this one!
