Indeed this is a very delicious and rich cake,My mother baked this cake for us when we were young my favorite way was with pecans baked in it.When I got a hold of it I played with it and tried it with lemon juice inside the cake and in the butter sauce it turned out so good but still just as rich a little went a long way..

I have made this cake twice now and both times it has been a hit. The last time I made this cake I put 1 TBSP of Spiced Rum in the sauce. Very tasty and easy recipe.
