    I baked this cake for my diabetic friends as gifts. Although I didn't try it, they raved about it and have requested it again.  -  10 Mar 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This cake is ok - nothing too special but worth a try.  -  05 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    It did flatten down after cooling, but it might be my fault - I made my own flour + baking soda + baking powder mixture instead of the self-raising flour. I liked the taste though, very moist and fruity. I think I might try this as muffins. I really like the idea.  -  19 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
