    This cake is extremely wet, but it's sooo good. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I used all purpose flour instead of cake flour. There is a lot of sauce, which makes it seem almost like a pudding. Excellent dessert. Next time I think I'll cut back a little on the brown sugar. Over all, delicious. Everybody loved it!  -  15 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very Yummy!! A bit rich, but very moist and delicious. I only used about 1/2 cup of brown sugar and it was still great!  -  31 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
