I made this for my sister and brother-in-law (who always tells you EXACTLY what he thinks) and in his very enthusiastic words.. "OH MY GOSH... BEST CAKE I HAVE EVER HAD!!! Can I take some home?!?!???!!" It was absolutely delicious and EASY and so rich and decadent with ice cream and the honey sauce! This will become a favorite for everything from special occasions to church picnics.

I took this to a club picnic for parents and toddlers. I was asked for the recipe over and over again. It tastes great and was a great alternative for my kids with food allergies. LOVE IT!
