I took several recipes, put them all together, and tweaked them until I came up with this. This is a winner. It's a healthier version of everyone's favorite cake. Would be great for any special occasion as it's very pretty! Or I just like to keep one in my fridge now and then for sweet tooth cravings. ;)
