I bake cakes weekly for our companies employees birthdays. This cake was a HUGE success! The men in the plant were particularly fond of it. The creamy filling that falls to the middle as it bakes is a wonderful surprise. But do take note!! Baking time IS longer than indicated.

I made this for my father-in-law's b-day and it was a hit. It was then requested for my husband's grandmother's birthday the following week. I did bake it a little longer than stated, just until the toothpick came out clean-- an extra 10-15 mins. Also this cake is somehow even more delicious the next day. Y*U*M*M*Y!!!
