"I am requested to make this very recipe every holiday. It makes a nice, light dessert after a heavy meal. Very luscious!"
"We love this recipe, it has a lot of flavor. I don't do the icing, but instead do a simple glaze with powdered sugar and lemon juice mixed together then drizzled over the cake; not as much fat that way. I also bake it in a bundt pan. It feels like a special occasion cake on a week night. :-)"
