Notes about this recipe

  • Zosia on April 23, 2015

    No one who tasted this cake liked it, but the reasons given were varied: it was too dry (strangely so despite large quantities of butter and creme fraiche); the vanilla cake portion had a metallic taste (baking powder?); the pecan streusel was too salty and the flavour of cloves was overwhelming. Everyone did agree that it was sweet enough. My baking time was 15 minutes longer than the recipe states (internal temp of 203F).
