This is a favorite potluck dessert of mine because it makes a large, scrumptious, moist cake and I never come home with any leftovers. I do, however come home with many requests for the recipe. I usually only make it when I need to take something somewhere to share as it is dangerous for me to make it just for us...... (I can't leave it alone).
