MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 22, 2014

"I made this cake according to the directions. The cake itself was moist but it looked more like brownies than cake. The "glaze" was a lake of chocolate--a real mess. My family will usually eat anything, even my cooking disasters, but I ended up throwing this cake away."

"This was absolutely delicious. I used Dr Pepper that I had on hand instead of Coke Cola. Can't wait to have a reason to make this again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 1, 2014 Edited Nov. 17, 2014

"Taste wise, this cake was delicious. The cake was rich with a hint of spice and the glaze tasted like chocolate fudge. My daughter was so excited to come home from school and see this cake waiting for her! She loved it! As far as the directions were concerned, I felt they could be simplified a bit. It took quite some time for the coke to reduce in the pan. I ended up bringing the cola to a boil for several minutes and simply measuring out the needed 1/2 cup of cola. The glaze was easy to spread and tasted great."

MY REVIEW

"This cake was very moist, almost gooey, and even more so after it sat for a day or two. Cinnamon added a nice flavor. A bit too sweet for my tastes."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 14, 2014

"I was so excited to make this cake. It was definitely moist and I had no problems with the glaze (you can't use Diet Coke for this recipe--need the sugar for reduction). The family loved it but I personally did not care for the overpowering cinnamon taste. I will definitely make it again but leave out the cinnamon."
