What could be better than a sweet and salty combination? This yummy cake will satisfy that craving easily!

Top Review by Mia in Germany

Moist and yummy, perfect balance of sweet and a little salty. I used my own home made gluten free cake mix, and it turned out delicious. I've had this kind of topping without cocoa before and have to say that to me, the cocoa made quite a difference. It tasted delectably chocolatey, wouldn't make it any different next time.<br/>Thanks for sharing!
