    This cake is amazingly moist and delicious. I added chocolate chips to the batter, didn't put quite as much powdered sugar in the frosting and added a bit of maple extract to the frosting. Delicious!

    I liked this recipe alot. Dense and moist. Be careful not to burn the topping.

    I used this as the base recipe for SL Banana Split Cake, increasing the recipe by half and baking it in a tube pan for 50 minutes. I added 1/2 cup each of toasted walnuts, shredded coconut and finely chopped reconstituted dried pineapple to the dry ingredients, and after the cake had cooled I split it in half horizontally and filled and topped it with thin layers of SL Fudge Frosting before pouring on the cream cheese glaze in the SL recipe (though half the amount). Garnished with more walnuts and coconut and a dozen maraschino cherries, this made an impressive presentation and was very moist and flavorful - and was much lighter than the original!
