Very yummy and moist! I cooked the sauce for 2 minutes and made a glaze out of it instead of sauce. Looked very pretty and was delish!

The cake was ok, a little heavy but the butterscotch sauce was AWFUL. It tasted like evaporated milk. Not one person in my family ate it, it ended up scraped to the side of the plate.

Delicious! I think I'll make double the sauce next time... Everyone said they could eat that with a spoon!

This cake has a wonderful flavor. Very moist as well. The sauce is perfect! My family really enjoyed this!

Very good, but as my husband said not earth shattering. The one thing I recommend is to serve it at a large dinner party or something similar. Since it was just the two of us the sauce presented better the first night.

This cake was so good! Based on some of the other reviews, I didn't even make the sauce, but it didn't need it. My husband told me I could make this cake anytime I wanted! :)
