This is a sweet, moist sponge cake but it's made richer by pouring a sweet, buttery sauce over it while it's still warm.
This recipe was a bit disapointing I had really high hopes because because of the ingredients and reviews so maybe that was the problem. It really sounded delicious, especially the butter sauce! I make pound cakes quite often (family favorite) and have had some great ones made from recipes on this site, but this one was not so great. After sitting for a day the cake was really dry except for the sauce soaked parts.The only way I would serve this to company is topped with a fruit sauce, like sauteed strawberries and sugar, but I won't be making this one again. - 01 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Thanks. This is an excellent cake and after reading a review that said it did not have much taste I question if they used pure vanilla. This will make a difference. Also, it is better if it is allowed to age for a couple of days. A cake any baker would be proud to serve. - 08 May 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe was absolutely delicious and moist. It was simple to make and I had raving reviews from people who tasted this cake. - 30 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
