This is an easy to make cake that is then drenched in a homemade Brandy syrup. Very rich and delicious. I have use it as an adult's birthday cake.
I thought the cake was a little bland and entirely too sweet. However, this is a good base to start with. The texture was very nice and dense. I think I'll try using some spices and almond flour (instead of the extract) and try cutting the amount sugar in the cake next time. - 23 Nov 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Bland and way too dense. Even with simple syrup it's still missing something. - 02 Oct 2014 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
