Fast, easy, delicious, elegant. Recipe from DH wants his next one served with ice cream instead of whipped topping. Batter can be made one day ahead of time and kept in refrigerator.

I've made this recipe a few times and it's AMAZING. Love Love Love it! The only con is it has enough saturated fat in it to kill you :p Honestly though, it's hard to eat more than half of one, so this can make 8 servings. Don't serve it with Cool Whip, serve it with vanilla ice cream! :)
