      I expected this to be super sweet, but it wasn't. It did take some time to prepare, but worth the trouble. I used a bundt pan (circular) and I liked the way it came out. Be sure to spray some oil in the pan to make it slide out easier. I think this could have used a little more cinnamon and next time I might use pureed soft tofu instead of sour cream. The walnuts definitely added to the flavor. The taste gets better with every bite and I can't wait to have it tomorrow with some coffee!

      Beautiful! This rose like a dream. Was light and fluffy and spongy. Had a sweet sticky film and just got better with age. Perfect for our Rosh Hashanna gifts/festivities/breakfasts. Lovely.

      This has potential; it just wasn't as sweet as I was hoping for. I halved the recipe and omitted the almonds, and the cake raised and cooked beautifully otherwise. Right now it tastes like a slightly bland gingerbread; I will make it again, and when I do, I'll add more sugar.
