Which Box said...

is there any still left? Am I too late? What's your professional opinion of serving with ice cream?

I know you can hear me... said...

Wow! That looks AMAZING!

the dragonfly said...

Looks yummy!!

I'll have to give this recipe to my mother-in-law...my brother-in-law has a wheat allergy, but it looks like he could eat this!

niobe said...

Which box: Ice cream is probably not my first choice, since the cake is pretty sweet already. But If you're craving a sugar rush, it's faster and easier than mainlining.

The dragonfly: I originally started baking this because one of my friends has a gluten allergy. I've kept making it because it's sooo easy and tasty.

Kristen said...
