Slowly pour hot sauce over warm cake. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes or until sauce is absorbed. Invert cake onto serving plate. Just before serving, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve with whipped cream if desired.

Jamallah, there are 2 more "Kentucky butter cakes" Here on JAP one by Gail Herbest, and one by Laura davis. Laura's One sounds similar to yours and has a picture. I saved them both. I have one also from a gal friend From Kentucky also.
