I have made this cake several times, as a snack cake, and for a family reunion, and it was a big hit, and I have been asked for the recipe more than once. I doubled the recipe and baked in round layer pans, and even put a shot of white wine in the glaze, and it turned out well. A definite thumbs-up!!!
