A good friend gave this recipe to me and you could have a competition on guessing the ingredients of this fail proof cake and no person would pick it. Truly one of the moistest cakes you could ever find. I have not iced it because we enjoy it as it is just decorating the top with almonds. I am waiting on someone to ice it so I can see how it turns out!
I didn't use chocolate milk, I have used orange juice or pineapple juice in lieu of the milk. You can still add the brandy, and it lasts much longer and tastes much better. - 30 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
How long would this cake last if you covered it with fondant? (Im concerned about the milk in it, and the fact that you cant refridgerate or even place a fondant covered cake in an air tight container) - 09 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
What a crap cake. Bitter as anything....had to throw it out. What a complete waste of ingredients and time - 22 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
