    Followed recipe exactly except made it in a sheet 13" x 9" pan. Fabulous. Husband wanted to stick his face in the frosting. Moist cake and not too sweet.

    This is one of my family's favorite desserts! We love it just like it is or the chocolate version with berries. We can't decide which is better!
