This is ooey gooey yummy. This was the first from-scratch my 5 year old helped make, so of course it's her favorite. The icing is kinda like fudge and the cake is very tasty. A big winner with kids. Took it to a picnic and the kids all devoured it. I loved asking people to guess the secret ingredient too.

This cake is definitely good; the only problem I found with the recipe (I got mine from a friend but the ingredients are the same) is that you might want to pour some of the batter into a smaller pan; if you put all of it in one pan it drips out leaving a mess.

This was such a fun cake to make! A bit sweet and gooey but the kids kicking around here loved it! I was impressed by just how moist this was. Next time we make it we are going to try Dr.Pepper just to see how it comes out! a definite fun cake to make with kids! Thank you!
