Great recipe. Easy, speedy and very tasty. It uses just a few basic ingredients that I always have on hand so it is a wonderful emergency dessert when unexpected guests call on their way to visit. As we are retired. and spend 3 months in Florida during the winter it is my "go to" dessert whenever we have dinner guests. Very decadent served warm with ice cream. I have made this many, many times since I first found the recipe a few years ago. Thank you for posting.

This is delicious! Followed the recipe exactly as stated. Will be making this many times in the future. My husband likes his with some Cool Whip. I like mine just the way it is. Yum!

Such a yummy cake!! Easy to make. Make sure your pan is big enough. I accidentally put it in an 8 inch pan and it bubbled over. It still tasted divine but made a mess!! I look forward to making this simple recipe again.
