I think the title pretty well explains it. This is a very moist cake with a hint of health--well, it uses whole wheat anyway.

Very similar to my recipe, which I'll probably post later. I use 1/2 cup butter for the cake and 1 tsp nutmeg and 1 tsp salt. Great recipe! I love on a savory cake like this, using whole wheat flour.

My butter cream sauce is slightly different... I'm going to try this recipe next time... but for my own reference... here's what is in my recipe: 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 1 cup cream, 1T karo syrup, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 t nutmeg. Simmer all 20 minutes.
