This is called a slab pie but I am not sure if it should be classified a cake. It is really somewhere in between! I followed the recipe exactly and it was good. I will make it again but may add ...

Yes, it was easy but my cake turned out really dry. I should've watched it really closely since the batter was so thin.

Tasted very good but I agree with the other reviews that it is a little dry. Delicious though, tempted to drizzle some powdered sugar icing on top.
