This cake was okay--it needs salt, maybe 1/2 teaspoon. It wasn't remarkable in any way for us, just tasted like a spiced cookie but with the texture of a quick bread. It took twice as long to ...

great flavor, but cooking it for 45 minutes made it overdone. next time i'll try it for 30 or 35 minutes.
