      I love this dessert. I hadn't realized that the recipe was posted and inadvertantly posted a duplicate that has now been removed. :oops: However, that gives me the opportunity to rate this incredible dessert. It is fall comfort food at its best. This cake is best served warm with the delicious sauce oozing over vanilla ice cream. I have hunters that visit each October and request this dessert.
