Expert Tips

The slices of this cake are quite thick. If you cut the slices in half, you still get a lot of taste--just in a smaller portion.

This batter also bakes up nicely in layers. Bake two 9-inch layers 32 to 37 minutes, then frost as desired.

For a different look, we cut the loaves into wedge shapes.
