This cake is seriously awesome. I just made half of the recipe and used the glaze. I love that this cake is not too sweet, the glaze gives it just enough...I think this would be a perfect brunch coffee cake also. My boyfriend loved this, it is a really good cake to make for the guys!!
Next time I am going to try doing it with the hard sauce, excited. Also can't wait to use this for cupcakes for my boyfriends birthday, as Jame-o is his favorite.
Thanks for the great recipe!!
