I was disappointed with this recipe for several reasons. I followed directions exactly, making no changes but it still came out rather dry and tough. The strange thing is, I baked it for exactly 70 minutes, checked it for doneness, and then when I sliced into it, you could see that it was slighty undercooked. Usually, that would make for a moister cake...but not this time. The frosting/glaze was great, though (if you like brown-sugar candy, you'd like this!). It did not have the texture I was looking for either. - 20 Jul 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Cake is very good but the frosting is wonderful!!!!! It like candy and my kids love it. I will use it for other cakes also. Thanks. - 27 Apr 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
While this is a pretty cake, and while the frosting is wonderful, the cake itself is dry, dry, dry. 'Nuff said. - 09 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
