I found this recipe as I was clipping coupons one day, and I decided to try it out for my gluten-free husband. There are only four ingredients, but there is a little bit of a method to putting this cake together. It is worth it though, and absolutely delicious!!! It's definitely not the prettiest thing you've ever seen, but its so good and gooey! I liked it with sliced strawberries.
I hope you try it!
