I am making the recipe for the second time, it is a family favorite! All four kids keep asking for it. I followed the recipe but added chocolate morsels ( I used half a bag) and mixed it with the cream cheese and it was incredible! Thanks for the recipe.
I LOVE a sweet dessert, but this is super super sweet as written. Ill make it again, but will cut way back on the powdered sugar.
I followed the recipe to the tee. It turned out absolutely delicious. The only thing I will say is that mine rose a little more than I've traditionally seen. Nonetheless, wonderful!
I made this cake for a neighborhood cookout. While I was talking with some friends, I saw a little boy steal 3 pieces before the dinner was ready. How he ate that much of this rich cake, I do not know but his mother must be dealing with a tummy ache about now. It is a great cake and everyone loved it. I will absolutely make this again.
Turned out fantastic. Cut Down on the amount of sugar and still turned out great. 4 1/2 cups is better than 1.7kg of sugar :-))
I have a different recipe for this cake. However, the other recipe has an after-taste that I didn't enjoy and I had a real problem with the measurements! So I looked for a recipe with different measurements that would accommodate what I could find at the store but also tastes good! This recipe fit the bill to a T! I was a little skeptical at first but I'm glad I followed the exact recipe! I'm completely satisfied and happy with the results! Even though i did not top the cake with extra sugar - its not needed! I still give it 2 thumbs up!
Made it for the first time tonite for tomorrows office potluck and had to taste it... you know, for quality assurance. I think I just had an out of body experience.
My mom use to always make this growing up. Her recipe mixes everything together, not making 2 layers as the recipe calls for and also sprinkles a lot of powdered sugar on top. I stuck making it exactly how the recipe calls for it, but the way my mom did is so much better. It's creamier. Everyone loved it though. When people see it for the first time they aren't sure they'll like it, but one bite and they are in love. This is a great recipe to keep!
