MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 26, 2013

Gorgeous cake! The only sad thing is that it wouldn't come out of the pan for me, broke into 3 pieces - so I am going to make trifle out of it. But the taste is incredible - got to have the pecans in there!

MY REVIEW

This cake is super moist and tasty! I didn't add pecans because I didn't have any and it was still good. I will make this again and add pecan next time (and maybe some chopped dates). Yum!
