Thank you, [member=18693]Laurna[/member] (and yes, that's pretty much what the cake looks like ;) ) and [member=867]Jerusha[/member] !

Apparently the reason the recipe came to the attention of America's Test Kitchen was that someone wrote in about their mother having made it but one of the products she (the mother) used is no longer being produced/sold, so the ATK bakers got to work figuring out a way to make it work with baking ingredients one can still find in most supermarkets.

One of the funnier (to me: admittedly I have a weird sense of humor sometimes) instructions on the ATK recipe is that you can't do the toothpick test on this cake (the way you can most other cakes and quick breads) because the center is supposed to be gooey, so they give some other way to test for doneness (it might be to touch the cake [the top of it as it's in the oven, but it'll be the bottom of the cake as served because of the shape of bundt cake pans] and check for a certain texture or spring-back).
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

I almost got a new great-niece for a birthday present!  She was born at 11 pm last night.  I don't know her name yet, but my niece is doing well (or as well as anyone who just had a baby is going to be).
