We greatly enjoyed this little cake. The directions were a bit jumbled, but all came together well and baked up moist and chocolatey. I reduced the vanilla sauce ingredients by more than's so rich! The entire amount of vanilla sauce would be decadent, indeed! Don't forget to butter and flour the baking pan. Great cake!
