I followed the recipe and the cake, in my opinion, was much too sweet. I should have gone with my gut and cut the sugar initially (3 cups of sugar for 3 cups of flour sounded like way too much! And it was.)I served it when it was warm, after cooling for 1 hr, and found it to be a very bland, heavy and greasy cake. I chose not to make the glaze as it was already so sweet, it didn't need the added sugar. I used a buttered and floured bundt pan, and didn't have any trouble turning the cake out. The only way I could salvage this cake was by cutting it into 1 inch wide, 3/4 inch thick, slices and baking them at 275 until dry and slightly crispy to make biscotti. I then dipped one side in some melted dark chocolate.
