    Delicious! Easy to put together. Baked beautifully. Snitched a piece off the top, crispy! Used my clean kitchen screwdriver to poke holes. Soaked up sauce. Slid out of pan easily. Tasted similar to pound cake but WAY more moist. I think this would be really good with toasted pecans...

    I made this cake for a dinner party and everyone loved it. They loved it so much, I just had to write a review and say thank you for the recipe. I substituted the vanilla extract in the sauce for almond to spice things up a little. I served it with homemade whipped cream and fresh strawberries.
