    This is a great recipe and definately worth making my friends, husband & his workmates loved it is so delicious......  -  25 Jul 2010


    such a good recipie! I doubled it, and 1 1/2'ed the icing ... so yum. Lovely and soft and moist with a great taste. mine came out deeper like a cake rather than a slice, glad i had baking paper to hold it in. everyone wanted more - i had to hide it. will be a popular and regular choice in my kitchen.  -  29 Jan 2012


    Really good and surprisingly light - made it with regular cream and a dash of vinegar (no sour cream on hand.) Made it with tangy lemon icing - didn't have any cream cheese.  -  25 Nov 2012
