I have made this cake for years and take it to church functions and just to enjoy at home.I’m not into sweets that much butI love this cake.Hope you enjoy it.
-I have made three of these cakes .I made the last two the day before as I said I would do in a earlier post.The first one I made was delicious ,but these two made the day before they were served came out very moist. This is one great cake and will be on my list for the Campmeetings.
-I was concerned that this cake called for milk instead of buttermilk or some other proven moisturizing ingredient such as sour cream or yogurt, but I made the cake as written. Sure enough, I found the cake a bit dry. The flavor was nice and the crumb was fine. The problem was not the baking time, as I underbaked the cake by 5 whole minutes. Otherwise, the cake could have used a nice soaking glaze while hot in the pan. If I make the cake again I will be sure to substitute for a more moist product.
-I made this cake for the Ministers Conference at church, I made it Tuesday, evening to serve for the 10 am coffee break the next morning .I was worried about it being to sweet .It was perfect, not to sweet at all . There was about half left for the afternoon break and it was better then in the morning .It got rave reviews ,and they are a picky bunch. In fact I will be making at least 4 for the October Revival..Marci,you will be surprised at the fact it was not really sweet. I was to say the least shocked .I am glad I rested the urge to cut down on the sugar …I use one cup of chopped pecans …
