    Everyone loved the cake and even asked to lick the frosting from the bowl. :) But for me it's too sweet. I would reduce the sugar next time.

    Exceptional recipe, and the frosting is also good not only for this cake but for other fall treats (spread it on graham crackers or apple slices or cornbread).

    This is a great cake. I love the texture. It's one of those cakes that tastes better the next day. I took it to work and it became history in a hurry. Thanks again, NurseDi. I envy your family for getting to eat at your house every night!
