This is a great, moist cake. Perfect as a base for cherries or berries. Makes a square pan or 6 Texas Sized Muffins, perfect for a small family or couple.

This is perfect when you have company at the last minute!! Made this cake for a co-worker's 40th birthday. Took me 5 minutes to make and voila!! I used low-fat cottage cheese as I didn't have any ricotta - will try again with ricotta!! My co-workers enjoyed this cake! Thanks KelBel!
