    This cake is really delicious! The cake makes up very moist, so it could be made up in advanced. Next time, I would consider cutting the recipe in half, using one of my smaller springform pans. I wasn't too crazy about the sauce, though. It is not a sauce that can withstand making up in advance and re-heating and I found it very rich. I think I would use a different type of sauce next time!!
