      We enjoyed this very much, love the combination of flavors and texture. I served this withwhip cream as it was for desert, but I think this would be better for tea. Thank you!

      Delicious cake, with a different taste. The whiskey definately added a nice twist. After a day or two in the fridge it reminded me little of biscotti. Wonderful with a cup of tea. Will be making this often.
