    Mirj's Note:

    This cake is good, I mean REALLY GOOD. If you use real vanilla extract the flavor is amazing. I have had a friend just pick at an entire meal because she knew I was serving this for dessert.

      You MUST try Mirjam's recipe. I ABSOLUTELY adore this recipe -- and I usually feel that if a dessert does not contain chocolate, why bother -- but I make an exception here. This is THE VERY BEST cake and I can't say enough about how incredibly delicious the hot sauce is with the cake. I add 1/2 tsp. cinnamon to the sauce and skip the nuts (just my personal aversion to nuts).

      I was looking for a spice cake recipe (it's my Dad's favorite) and came across this one. It was absolutely delicious! The sauce is SINFUL with a capital "S", the sauce together with the apples in the cake reminded me of eating a caramel apple (yummy!). Next time I make this wonderful recipe, I'm going to double it...because we demolished the cake in record time! (If you make this recipe for a crowd, I suggest doubling or even tripling it).

      All I can say is: There were four of us for dinner and only two pieces of this cake were left! There probably wouldn't have been any but we were feeling a little ashamed of making pigs of ourselves! Suggestion: how 'bout a scoop of french vanilla ice cream on the side? If you're gonna sin...sin big!
