The cake was good but didn't really like the sauce. The concept is great.

This had a very unusual texture and appearance. I tried my hardest sell it to my family by serving it up in pretty little bowls, but my family didn't buy it. It did take an elegant picture, though.

I came across this recipe just this morning in an old issue of Taste of Home (Apr/May 1994). I thought it sounded like a cozy dessert for a rainy night so I made it and served it warm with whipped cream. It is really yummy just as written and I would not change a thing. Thx for posting.
