This is my daughter's version of a recipe she found on the internet. She makes a few different versions of it, I posted two of them here. One is made with fewer calories and sugar, she makes that version for diabetics in the family.

This is a very easy cake to make! It is moist and very flavorful!

The children enjoyed making it almost as much as they enjoyed eating it!

This is a wonderful recipe to make for potlucks and picnics!
