This is such an easy cake to make for the rewards you receive when you sink your teeth into a slice of this cake!!!!! After the cake was eaten to the very last crumb I was asked to make it again. I am embarrassed to say that this cake was eaten within hours of it being made. I iced the cake with a chocolate fudge icing. Congratulations Gingerbee on a terrific recipe. Although I should be cussing you for posting this yummy recipe!! ;-) Chrissyo

Easy and good. My family ate the whole thing while it was still warm.
