real maple syrup
Great recipe! I would suggest using fresh ginger and adding some vanilla. Also, I used whole wheat pastry flour for half of the flour, butter instead of shortening, and yogurt instead of sour cream. I added raisins for some more texture. For the frosting, I made a cinammon whipped cream cheese frosting and sprinkled the top with crushed walnuts. I made the cake for a friend's birthday and everyone loved it. The ginger really adds something special.
Wonderful cake. Moist and flavorful. I followed exactly except used a Bundt pan and baked for 45 minutes. Frosted with a maple-cream cheese frosting that I made very soft and sort of draped over the cake. Then I grated some hazelnuts and chocolate dust over the top - beautiful presentation! Thanks for the great recipe! OH. I used butter instead of shortening, too.
Very good cake! I baked this for my sister's birthday, and it was very well received. I just used a basic powdered sugar/milk icing, and there was more than one comment of 'best cake ever'. I also used softened butter instead of shortening.
The flavor of this cake is wonderful. I made this as a layer cake, and it was quite an eyesore. The middle of the cakes did not rise so nicely and the edges got kind of tough. I am new at baking cakes from scratch.. maybe my baking powder and soda was tired, maybe my maple syrup and eggs were too cold. I want to make this again. I used Sour Cream Frosting as a glaze, and the flavors worked together nicely, but since the frosting turned out to be a glaze, it didn't hide my cake's defects. This cake is fantastic with coffee.
Very yummy cake! Light textured, and nice with a cup of tea or coffee. It's very sweet. Too bad maple syrup is expensive...
great cake!! i made it for my mum's birthday and everybody loved it!
I made this for an office thing and everyone really loved it. I did a basic vanilla glaze and everyone commented it was perfect for breakfast. Not too sweet but flavorful.
The cake was excellent! :) Although, one flaw the cooking time was too long when I put the cake in for the recommended time it was overcooked.
