 My grandmas were lunch ladies back in the day and used to make yummy cakes like this all the time.

I love to try out new recipes when we have a get together because you have so many people together that can give you their opinion.

This is a no-fail recipe and will be a hit at any gathering.





  • CHOCOLATE: The top of the cake has a drizzle of chocolate. You can either use chocolate topping or you can melt chocolate chips. If you melt the chocolate chips, just place them in the microwave in a bowl for a minute. Stir until smooth. If you need a few more seconds then go ahead. I would just do 30 second intervals after the first minute.
  • CARAMEL: I used Trader Joe’s caramel topping but homemade caramel is the best! It just depends how much time you have.
  • NUTS: I always use almonds because my family have nut allergies. Any nut would be fabulous on this!
  • STORAGE: Cover with tin foil and plastic wrap and it should stay fresh up to 3 to 4 days on your countertop!
