"I was a bit timid about trying this following its first review but I did and it is wonderful. I used milk instead of water (why use water in a cake??) and I substituted almond flavouring because I tho..." See moreught it would compliment the gumdrops...I WAS RIGHT. I took 20 minutes off the time to make it 1 hour and 10 minute rather than 1 1/2 hours...just right. Then I drizzled glaze over the top and it was a real winner."
"This cake was very dry. I would reduce cook time to 1 hour and then test with toothpick. I would also double the amount of gumdrops used. Good basic recipe, I am tinkering with it to make better...." See more"
