Like many other reviewers, I found this cake to be very bland. I even followed the suggestion of another reviewer and used a cup of orange juice concentrate in place of one of the cups of evaporated milk because I like the orange-cranberry flavor... while that did add a mild orange taste, the cake was blah. I can't imagine what it would have been like had I not added the juice. The hot butter sauce did make it palatable, but to me, a good dessert shouldn't have to be smothered in a sauce to be good. Sauces should be optional and the cake should be able to stand alone. This one cannot, as without the butter sauce, it's simply not tasty. Do yourself a favor and save this recipe for the hot butter sauce, but find a suitable replacement for the cake.
