I made this cake years ago and my oldest son( a man of few words) raved about this cake and when he comes in from Colorado always asks for it. It is very moist.

This was a delicious cake! I made the two layer version, topped it with a ring of walnut halves...gorgeous. Note: I didn't have maple flavoring so used maple syrup instead.

This is an absolutely delicious cake. I've made it several times for the holidays, and it always gets rave reviews. It's perfectly moist and has just the right amount of spice to balance the sweetness of the frosting.
