    Great cake and really easy to make gluten free . Love that there's no butter in it too!  -  16 Jul 2011  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Very easy and delicious with a sort of European feel to it because of all the nuts and the coffee glaze. I used less icing sugar in the glaze (150g) and it still seemed thick enough.  -  08 Oct 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    Super-quick & easy to make! I used just a little less milk and a tat more rum, and made a chocolate glaze instead of coffee - so good, I'll definitely make this one again!  -  27 Dec 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
