    This is a very nice cake. Subtle and not too sweet. I do suspect that because I used damp sugar, the texture was very soft. My 13x9 pan is about 2" deep so I had to use a 4x9 loaf pan to bake the excess batter. I will do this cake again but with normal dry sugar and post the results.

    Donna, Somehow this review didn't show up so here it is again. This recipe is awesome. I've made it just as it is and I've added cinnamon to the batter. It has become my favorite recipe. Thanks for sharing. Dee K.
