    Excellent cake, and appreciated by all. My only complaint was that the instructions could have been worded a little bit better, hense the 4 star rating. My cooking time was off about 15 minutes. I would use a wooden skewer to check to see if it is cooked. The cake is so dense that the toothpick method didn't work in this case. I served this to 10 people and I had a half of a bundt pan left, so next time, I would cut the recipe in half and use in a loaf pan. Excellent recipe, one that I would definately use again!!! Thanks for the posting!
