The cake's crumb is soft and tender. And the flavor is awesome, buttery, sweet, with a slight tang. And then the chocolate streusel part... yum, chocolatey with a hint of cinnamon. I think the cake part would be great if you'd like a change of pace from a traditional yellow butter cake.
I couldn't wait to try this cake. As soon as it was cool enough, I had to cut a few slices. It smells so buttery. I love it when the edges are still crisp which is why I like to taste butter cake on the day it is baked.
- Hubby liked it a lot, and gave it an 8 to 9 out of 10. So that's an average of 8.5 out of 10. He likes cake that's soft and fluffy, so this cake rated very high :o)
- The only change I made to the recipe is reduce the cinnamon to 1/8 tsp.
- For next time, I'll add orange zest to the batter because I really like chocolate and orange together. I still vivid memories of the True Orange Genoise.
