    ... ... I followed the Recipe to a 'T' and I did not end up with a moist cake. It resembled something of a large Scone - a very dry Scone. After taking a lot of care following Recipe and using a lot of Booze I was very disappointed with my Cake - any suggestions ???  -  19 Dec 2011


    Used different ingredients. I added a glaze of melted butter, brandy and sugar while it was still warm.  -  25 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
