MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2013

"This cake is AWSOME! Recipe has given me an extra bonus! I'm lactose intolerant, so I made the pudding with half non dairy eggnog and half mocha mix, and it turned out great! Thank you!"

MY REVIEW

"This cake is so moist and delicious. It looks so pretty and smells delicious as it is cooking. I wasn't expecting to have such a rich taste. I made this about three weeks ago and I am going to make it again on Christmas Eve for my family. I did not even use the custard sauce. Whipcream goes great with it!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2009

"My kitchen smelled amazing as this easy to assemble cake baked in the oven. Superb flavor, I would serve the cake with just a sprinkling of powdered sugar. But the custard sauce that is served with it takes on an elegance in flavor. Fabulous!"
