Thank you Cindy for a wonderful cake. I'm not a big sweet eater so almost didn't try it. She sent some home with us and I got a 1/2 slice---and went back for more---and went back for more again. I finally got the recipe.

I am a newlywed without a lot of domestic experience but I received a Kitchen Aid mixer for a wedding present - - so the deal I made with my husband is that if he would cook once a week for us, then I would cook a cake for us once a month. So I've been collecting a ton of cake recipes to try and this was my second one. All I can say is WOW. This cake is AAAMMMMMAAAZZZING. It wasn't difficult at all - - and what makes it is that warm sauce that you pour over top of it. My husband just ate 3 slices of it back-to-back and I'm fighting the urge right now to not go back into the kitchen and cut myself another huge hunk of it. Beware - - it's addictive!
