This was pretty good although it was more like a brownie than cake. Be sure to let this cool COMPLETELY before cutting or it appears to be gooey. Otherwise, it's great!!! Enjoy!

Did I do something wrong? The cake was tasty,but the top had a crisp crust, and the center was too gooey. It had the consistency of uncooked cake batter. Yuck! I made it exactly as instructed,...

OH THIS ONE IS IT, THE TASTE IS OUTSTANDING, VERY RICH BUT VERY GOOD, TYR IT YOU WILL LOVE IT GLENDA~TEXAS

Rich and gooey and YUMMY!

I made this for my husband at work. He said everyone loved it. I substituted chocolate cake for yellow and added milk chocolate chips.

My husband LOVED this! It's very good. It's fun to try different flavor combinations with this one!

This recipe is so easy to make and an excellent desert to bring to a potluck or social gathering. Very yummy, forget about dieting!

We werent crazy about it ... maybe I did something wrong. It was ok, just not great. I think I would enjoy it more with a chocolate mix.. or maybe lemon??
