Sorry to say it will have to get in line behind the Chief's Pumpkin Crisp and the chocolate cream pie that's been requested for T'giving dinner. But I'll report back when the Maple Cake's name is called. I hope there will be feedback from others in the meantime.

Nope tinlizzie, I meant you! You replied and you drooled so you're the one I want to hear from. If the original asker posts, I'll want to hear about that too.

Buckytom, Ken would not even notice if there was a football game on! However, I suspect if there was a sporting event on TV you would no longer be my slave!

We have nut allergies in the house so I don't use walnuts in this. I've smashed skor bar and used that. You have to make the icing and add the bits at the end though. That nicely ties in the chocolate bit for you BT.

I have another recipe that uses maple extract, but I figured I'd post the real deal first.

Okey Dokey. And you'll no doubt be glad to hear that my drool reservoir is filled back up so I'll be ready for that next recipe, too.

I just now read through the recipe again -- is it really 90 minutes for 9" layer pans? I don't mean to doubt you, but that's a pretty long time.

Hmmm. That's what the recipe says, and honestly its years since I've made this so I can't really say otherwise. It IS way too long I think. I suspect its more like 30-40 minutes. I'd be checking at 30 myself.

I may have to make this now. I'm thinking maple and skor bits...mmmmmmmm.
