"I made this as a special request from my fiance. We both thought it tasted fine but there was nothing special about it. Maybe it should be a little sweeter. Oh well. Edit: The next day it was muc..." See moreh sweeter. I guess it just needed some time for the flavors to settle. It also stayed very moist for a full week.
