I had some buttermilk and prunes that I needed to use and this recipe was perfect. I increased the spices in the cake and added a half teaspoon baking soda to the glaze mixture so the buttermilk would not curdle. The glaze was so good, but I did not use it all. When the cake was cool enough, I set the rack it was on over a baking sheet to collect the extra glaze. I baked the cake for 57 minutes and my boyfriend said the bottom was a little overdone. I have an oven thermometer that says my oven is correct. It was probably only a few minutes too long, so I recommend checking your cake a bit early. I do think the bottom softened up after a bit, though. This really was pretty good. My boyfriend ate it, but didn't seem crazy about it. I may make it again sometime.
