      A non-baking friend of mine (coincidentally named Patty), actually read this book and asked me to make this recipe. IT WAS DELICIOUS! This cake was just wonderful, and I could eat the sauce plain. It's not as rich as you might expect given the chocolate and caramel, the coffee and bourbon balance it out quite nicely. Definitely try this recipe!
