  1. This is a really good cake. We especially liked the icing on this.
  2. I had an easy time making this cake. The end result is delicious, although a little too moist. Definitely a great cake to serve with tea.
  3. Only reason this wasn't a 5 is because of my DH (he's my expert taster) It really should have a 4 1/2 - it is soooo easy to make and really tasty. I did add cinnamon and nutmeg but apparently not enough. Just needed a little more flavor. I added 1 cup of raising (DH's request) and omitted the icing - it is wonderful with ice cream or with cool whip on top! Thanks for a great recipe - we'll be making this again!!
  4. This was a great recipe. Easy and fast to whip up. I added a tsp of cinnamon, just cos I really like cinnamon. It came out great and tastes terrific. Will probably make this a lot. Thanks, keep up the good work.
  5. This was very moist; we liked the way the icing sunk into the cake making almost a hard crust on the outside; I did add some cinnamon & nutmeg as I thought it might be a bit bland without it. The pecans added a nice crunch as well; good texture; easy to prepare.


I'm a writer, a retired accountant, a wife, grandmother, a gardener, a cook, a bird watcher, a sky watcher, a lover of the ocean, a walker, and a life long resident of Victoria, BC on Vancouver Island. It's a big city now, with all the big city advantages and disadvantages. I miss the small town feel but love the restaurant choices and the people friendly improvements. My writing is mainly non fiction on historical bits, and I have brief and so far unsuccessful forays into historical fiction. Someday..... I don't think I'm a great cook but I'm the kind of cook who can walk into the kitchen and find good things in the fridge and pantry and make it into a meal that everyone thinks is pretty darn good. Sometimes I use a recipe and sometimes...not so much. I have a great collection of cookbooks, and I love reading them and studying the pictures. Sometimes I even cook the recipes, LOL! And that is why I love Zaar, an unending source of recipes and pictures.
