"Love this recipe! My father went through throat cancer and has lost a lot of his taste in his taste buds not to mention the ability to swallow most foods. This is one food item he can actually taste after more than a couple of bites and not lose the sense of the flavor of the cake and swallow without a coughing fit. This cake is great warm or cold, so perfect for family reunions or picnics or whatever. Also, we love it served with whipped cream or ice cream on top. It also stays moist for quite a few days. Definitely a staple desert for our family!"
