I doubled this, and left out the cardamom and rum... used almond extract in the topping instead, and canned pineapple chunks. The topping is wonderful, glad i watched the video because mine always stuck to the pan. Baked at 400 for 25 minutes in a cast iron skillet, it released perfectly. The cake itself is, a little doughy tasting to me though... it is very light and fluffy, although I would prefer this a bit less done because i like my cake very dense and heavy. Doesnt taste like a boxed cake at all, which is good, but something is just lacking for me. I usually put a can of chunk or shredded pineapple in my cake mix, to make it a bit more dense, so maybe I will try that next time and see if it changes much. If you like a fluffy cake, though, this is perfect for you! Just be sure to mix the dry ingredients together first, makes a definite difference.
