Alice found this recipe in a book. It's incredibly easy to make this cake -- if you do the measuring, even a toddler can do the "work!" The end result is a dense, moist cake that tastes lovely plain, but would also go nicely with some powdered sugar, chocolate glaze, freshly whipped cream, or sliced fruit.
