Gumdrop Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2012
After reading the reviews, I decided to change the recipe slightly. I used 3 1/2 cups of flour only reserving 1/4 cup for the gumdrops. I used gumdrops only and yes, I did add the black ones, my grandkids love them. I omitted the extracts and used 2 tsp. of pure, organic lemon juice instead and incorporated the grated lemon rind into the flour mix. I also used milk as was suggested by another reviewer and baked it for one hour only and it was done to perfection. The cake just came out of the oven and looks absolutely beautiful. My husband came home and said it looked like it came from a bakery! Lucille D

Nice Cake, reminds me of the gumdrop cake my mother made as I was a child in BC Canada. Making it with Dried Cranberries little orange zest, extra gumdrops.. drizzled with icing... YUMMY

I followed the receipe except I didn't have gumdrops. I used 3/4 cup of small diced dried fruit and 3/4 cup of chopped walnuts. My family really likes the cake but they all said it tastes like a coffee cake.

I was a bit timid about trying this following its first review but I did and it is wonderful. I used milk instead of water (why use water in a cake??) and I substituted almond flavouring because I thought it would compliment the gumdrops...I WAS RIGHT. I took 20 minutes off the time to make it 1 hour and 10 minute rather than 1 1/2 hours...just right. Then I drizzled glaze over the top and it was a real winner.

This cake was very dry. I would reduce cook time to 1 hour and then test with toothpick. I would also double the amount of gumdrops used. Good basic recipe, I am tinkering with it to make better.
