    A lowfat, rich tasting dessert. Don't use "diet" margarine, since water content is too high.

      Great dessert or snack cake that I don't feel guilty about eating. I used a healthy non-hydrogenated margarine, Splenda, skim milk, 2 Tbsp Splenda Brown Blend. The only real problem with this cake is that just before you finish a slice you already want another! Thanks much for posting this one Mike. Made for Photo Tag.

      Made for Went to Market Tag. This is a nice little cake. I like cake recipes that make a small amount as there are only three of us and a 9x13 cake pan is way too much. Was able to make this gluten free by using my gluten free flour and oats and adding 1 T ground flax seed. Thanks for posting this mikekey! Will definitely make this again!

      What a lovely little cake! Easy to put together and such clear directions. A nice, moist cake with a fine crumb. I had to leave out the nuts the first time, but it really didn't matter although the next time they added a nice texture. This one's a real keeper and well worth making.I know what I'm taking to the next bake sale!
