This recipe is very easy, and great for beginner bakers like myself. My entire family loved it!

I'm a bit confused on what to use in place of maple extract/flavoring for the glaze. Could not find where to purchase it so i used almond flavoring. I'm sure it would have been better if you could put something with the recipe as a substitute. Thanks alot.

I just love the flavors of this cake. The maple just makes the cake so powerful and full of a warm buttery flavor when you bite into it. My father is not a baker but he said he can make this dessert any day.
