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...

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 changed shortening to butter, but other than that kept the recipe the same, wonderful!!

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.
