Pretty good. I added some stuff to it: like frozen blueberries and lots of pineapple and some of lemon and orange pill. It gives more smell and flavor to it. And when its ready pour some hot chocolate raspberries syrup. It tasted amazingly

We enjoyed the cake but not very sweet. This cake is not dense like a pound cake more like old fashion simple cake. It is still good and would fix again.
