This cake is, to put it simply, delicious. It is dense and has the right balance of sweet and tartness. This isn't, however, friendly on the fat content, using 1 1/2 sticks of butter and 2 cups of water, yielding 360 calories per slice. But a small slice doesn't hurt because it is such a great dessert.
This recipe is from Everyday Food. Yields 10 servings.
The recipe noted that you can store cooled cake, tightly wrapped in plastic, at room temperature, up to 1 day. Enjoy!
