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

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... The Test Kitchen
