This cake provided a decadent outstandingly delicious presentation to my Easter table. Everyone raved about how moist and flavorful it was. Two ladies went home with the recipe. I omitted step 6. Thanks for a keeper Judy!

This cake was perfect it was moist and wonderful with ice cream on the side. The holes were the only problem if they are not wide enough the filling doesn't get in the cake. I used a skewer next time I will use a new screwdriver or letter opener unused. It would make a wider hole for the filling to get. It was a greate cake my guest just raved about it. Also I added more peach schnapps to the filling
