Author's comment: "This is an easy, one-bowl cake that you can make with a whisk or an electric mixer."

Serving Suggestions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8" springform pan and set aside. Whisk dry ingredients in a bowl. Melt butter and add it, mixing well. Add in eggs and mix. The batter will be thick. Scrape it into the greased pan and smooth the top with a spoon or spatula to level it off. Bake for 20 to 25 min. It should still be jiggly in the middle. It is important to avoid over-baking; it is a little undercooked on purpose so that the resulting cake will be sticky and gooey in the middle. Cool for 10 to 15 min. before gently removing from the pan.
