A friend made this cake and raved about it. I was skeptical. A cake with no eggs, no milk, no butter? Yep, and it tasted delicious! It was simple to make. You can make it right in the pan you are baking it in. One less dish to wash! This is a great cake when you need/want something quick, easy and delicious.
The cake tasted like a cross between a brownie and cake. The fudgy frosting on top was super delicious. We both preferred this cake with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. BOOM! I wish I had a piece right now!
