This was a very simple and delicious recipe. I flipped the "cake" over by inverting onto a serving plate, dusted with powdered sugar and then allowed folks to choose from vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, caramel sauce and applesauce as toppings. The whipped cream and caramel sauce were most popular. This served 4.
