This cake is perfect for Fall or anytime. It is moist and delicious as anything you have had the pleasure of eating before. My girlfriend Bonnie thinks it is the best thing ever. She rolls her eyes around and ooohhhs and ahhhhhs every breath. I just sit and laugh at her. Makes me happy to see other people enjoy my cookin'. Hope you enjoy it as well.
