    It’s late, I don’t have eggs, but I wanted cake. Right NOW! This was perfect. I added a tiny pinch of salt and a splash of vanilla to the batter and made it with the baking powder, not soda. I also made some ganache to pour over it. Very easy and SO yummy. Had a delicious desert ready for all 3 of us in about 15 minutes. Definitely a keeper.

    Aaack! I meant to rate it and hit 5 bells and it did 1! Don’t know how to fix it, sorry!

    I’m so glad you liked it! I made it again tonight with an addition: 4 crumbled Oreo cookies. Oh. My. Goodness. I’ll be up forever with the sugar rush but oh so good!
