    This recipe results in some scrumptious! I made them according to the recipe with one exception, I added more almond extract. Next time I’ll reduce the sugar sprinkled on top. The crunchy sugar is good, but it added too much sweetness. I will make this again!

    These are soo delicious and a huge hit! I took these to a family get together and not a piece was left! I followed the recommendations of cooking for about 35 minutes and they came out perfect. Very easy to make - I'll definitely be making these again!!

    I will definitely make this again! But I will cut the sugar on top to 2 tablespoons.

    Took this to an event & got 2 requests for the recipe. I also baked for 5 mins longer as suggested. Would make again.

    This cake was very, very good and very easy to whip up . . . a dangerous combination!!!! I did have to bake it for about 35 minutes to test done, but once it was done, did not have any of the previously mentioned problems with the cake not being done. We will be making this again and again!

    This recipe is delicious, and I would definitely make it again. It does sink a bit however, which is why I gave it four stars.

    I will never make this cake again when I'm home alone. I loved it waaaay tooo much. My husband only got 4 out of the 10 pieces. It's a good thing I exercise a lot:)

    This cake is excellent! I shared it with 7 others and it got rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I will definitely be making it again. The only change I made was to sprinkle half the amount of sugar called for over the top of the cake. It was great!

    I htink we will like these the next time I make them. Unfortunately, I tested them at 25 minutes and got a clean pick, however after they cooled, they would not at all cooked and fell in the middle. It was dough-city from that point on. Very disappointing. I'm surprised that no one else mentioned the problem with the baking time???
