I was so disappointed, though the cake baked perfectly and looked so good it was far too sweet and bland, even my husband who likes sweet, agreed, a waste of good ingredients as I threw it out! I was surprised there were no spices in the recipe, I should have followed my instincts and added some and cut back on the sugar. I did not soak the pecans in Bourbon as suggested, maybe I should have! I will stick to the recipe my friend from Kentucky gave me, more work but worth the effort. I tried this one because I had leftover buttermilk from making Soda Bread so was looking for a new way to use it up, but this cake just did not work out for us.
