i first had this cake at a restaurant in Houston several years ago and loved it - one day it sounded so good so i looked online for a recipe - baking from scratch is not my forte so i decided to cheat - it turned out great - i've been making it ever since with the Duncan Hines box mix - even put it in a charity auction and it sold for $25 - my friends and family love it and it couldn't be easier
