It cooks like a Pound Cake and does very well in a bundt pan. I made it for Easter and received rave reviews.
I make this cake every year at Christmas. The cake has the consistency of a pound cake, be careful not to over-bake it or it will be dry. The frosting is delicious, but you need to be patient and use a candy thermometer. I would not recommend it for a novice baker as the frosting is tricky.
I bake cakes all the time, All kinds of cakes and this was a total disaster. It was so heavy and thick. And the frosting was so super sweet. Be aware that it only takes a moment to scorch that sugar for the frosting. it will look good but it will taste burnt. So don't make it as dark as the recipe calls for. This appears to be a standard recipe for layer, My thought is the extra flour makes it heavy. Maybe the use of cake flour would be better. i am not willing to try it again. I made it for my daughter's birthday. We were so disappointed.
I make a sea salt caramel frosting,puts it over the top!!
