Hope you like it Patty. Its pretty dense but has a great crumb. (Brown sugar fudge icing is GREAT on this cake.)

Hope you like it. Have you decided what frosting to use?

I like the brown sugar icing I posted, but I have recently been using a creamy lemon icing. (Cream cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice and icing sugar) Its REALLY good. My kids like yogurt whipped with some icing sugar and some sliced strawberries with this cake.

Post a picture for us!

That has my wheels turning. Do you just beat in the sugar? How much of each? Extract sounds like it would be a welcome addition here. If one used fat free Greek yogurt that would cancel out all the sugar and eggs in the cake.

I don't measure Patty. I just put icing sugar in until its the consistency I want.
