This cake was an absolute hit with my entire family! That's saying a lot, too, as they're staunch Mainers who like their "standard" Northeastern US desserts, so a wet cake was really pushing it in my opinion. Still, they all had seconds and thirds and even asked me for the recipe! My only modifications when I make this again will be halving the milk syrup mixture as I ended up with a lot of extra pooling in the pan, which made it difficult to transport. I also used about half of the sugar called for in the whipped cream topping because I prefer my whipped cream unsweetened so I compromised. The cake was very sweet so I feel it balanced it out. I tried dusting some baking cocoa over the top of a piece - yummy! (And can I just say I am shocked that someone would put Cool Whip on top of a cake like this, bleurgh.) Very simple, very delicious, and definitely something I'll make again for a special occasion. My son declared it his new favorite food! :)
