    Awesome. I didnt use any of the spices...just the base recipe. It was wonderful, moist, delish.  -  14 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    A very odd cake, but tasty enough. This one gets 4 stars from me because I just didn't care for the bits of corn that got stuck in my teeth. I did substitute butter for the oil and skipped the raisins and nuts. I made this for a corn festival, but probably won't make it again. The icing, however, is wonderful and I will use that part of the recipe again!  -  10 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My students made this for their "Corn" feast and in spite of 8 sets of hands helping- it came out wonderful. One student asked for more!  -  23 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
