Moist and flavorful! It is sweet, but not unbearably so! I used whole wheat flour instead of the all purpose kind. The cake is great!

I was baffled that one person would say it is too sweet and one would say not sweet enough. Now I know why. The honey has an intense sweet flavor, but there is a bitter undertaste that the honey doesn't totally mask. I thought it was OK, kind of different. My husband doesn't like it at all.

I totally modified this recipe, using cashew butter & water for the tahini, and soymilk for most of the water. I have to say, it's pretty nice! It tastes very much like nutmeg, it's very sweet, and even despite its richness I like it with a bit of soft butter on top. Low-cal! haha...

Easy to make, very delicious and a nice change of pace. But extremely rich. I cut the oil in half and substituted 2 tablespoons of lighter bake and it was still quite rich. Nine servings is unrealistic, I would say maybe twice or three times that because all you can eat is a small sliver. That sliver is very good however.

This recipe actually didn't seem so rich to me, but maybe my oven cooked it too quickly. I would recommend maybe doubling the honey, or adding molassas. It wasn't hardly sweet at all.
