    Wow. I'm going to make this after I go feed Ralph (my pet mosquito). Maybe I should make it first. He might like it too. L.

    I absolutely love this cake! It's one of my favorite cakes, it is easy, tasty and does not need icing.

    Very nice twist with Cointreau - I think it would work the best! I have a similar recipe, without the orange liquor - I will try your version from now on!
