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

Ok, Laura clearly knows the way into our hearts with this recipe. This butter cake has a super-rich buttery flavor. It's moist, fluffy, and just melts in your mouth. 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. This sure is a treat and makes for such a splendid presentation! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
