Notes

I made this cake for the first time, today. It comes from "Best Of The Best Big Sky Cookbook." It's easy and fast, and tastes great. My only suggestion is to scrap their Cream Sauce, which is very thin and just soaks into the cake. A better and much easier topping is to just let some good-quality vanilla ice cream melt, add a tad of Contreau or Grand Marnier, then drizzle it over the top. Now THERE'S a sauce!!
