I think next time, I am not going to make the glaze. The cooking time seem to be perfect for my stove and cake. I loved it, my friends loved it, and I am making it for Thanksgiving.

Make it Again? Cherie P. would make this recipe again.

Rhonda S. Said:

The cake is still baking, I put it in the oven for 35 min 5 min over the recommended baking time. It is no where near done. 325* for 30 min is incorrect. Spicehouse needs to amend the baking time.

Make it Again? Rhonda S. would not make this recipe again.
