Oh so good, If you prefer your cake with more sauce, just make a double batch. It is heavenly

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Ok, Laura's clearly knows the way to my heart: Kentucky, butter AND cake all in one recipe?! Woohoo... This sure is a treat and makes for such a splendid presentation! With just a slightly sweet flavor there's no fear of being sent into a sugar coma and it's pretty close to perfection served alongside a steaming cup of coffee. Mmmmm...

Laura,

Thank you for posting this recipe! My mom's recipe card (she died in 1976) is yellowed and faded, so it is good to see the SAME, exact recipe elsewhere on-line. Thank you! You made my day! By the way, I am making this for a school luncheon on Monday - it's ALWAYS a hit!

I don't have a bundt pan. Can I make this in a 9 X 13 X 2 pan until I get a bundt pan?Will the center bake properly? Has anyone tried baking it in a sheet type pan?

I used UNSALTED butter since the cake batter has salt added to it. In one word...DELISH!!!
