    I made this cake last night and finally was able to have a slice this afternoon. While the flavors were really good, I think I made an error somewhere in making it. My cake didn't really come out like cake. It's more like a dry brownie.

    Would anyone have any ideas as to what I did wrong? I like this recipe and I'd like to try it again sometime.
