    This is an easy one-bowl recipe! If you prefer more sauce on the cake, then the butter sauce can easily be doubled.

      10 Stars for this one. My customers devour this cake and so do I. The only substitution I make is I add 2 tablespoons of rum to the cake mixture and I also add 1/2 a cup of rum to the glaze after I remove it from the stove. I also poke a lot of whole threw the cake using a skewer.

      Wow. EASY, MOIST, BUTTERY & DELICIOUS. What more do I need to say? I used Kitt's Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!) to grease the pan & a long wooden skewer to make holes in the cake. I also had a small lemon that was half zested & needed to be used up so I zested the other half into the batter. My favorite part is how the butter sauce soaks into the cake & down around the sides, then as it cools it creates a slightly crunchy, candy-like taste & it is TDF. We ate this warm before dinner last night & I just ate a piece cold this morning. Still delicious! Made in memory of John.

      This cake was good but not at all what I was expecting. It had more of a muffin texture. I poked it full of holes and pulled it away from the sides of the pan to make sure the sauce could get all through it. It reminded me somewhat of pound cake. We decided that it would probably be really good served as part of a strawberry shortcake with fresh berries and whipped cream.
