My friend brought this to work. It really is scrumptious. It is also very rich and sweet. The first day it is baked, heavenly. The second day, good ,but not like the first day. After 2 days, not so scrumptious any longer. Make it for a crowd , so it will all be eaten that first day.

The cake was too dense and too "doughy". If you're looking for more of a cake consistency, find another recipe. The cake tasted like flour...needs more flavor.
