A co-worker, Carolyn, in Louisville way back when, baked this cake the first time I ate it and it is ooey, gooey good; a great tasting rich cake! Temptingly sweet and delicious, these sweeties actually fall somewhere between a bar-type dessert and a coffee cake. It makes your teeth hurt just smelling it!
