I found this recipe handwritten into an old cookbook of my mom's, who was born in 1897. We like to eat this old-fashioned dessert warm, topped with cream, ice cream or whipped cream.

"We're not keen on desserts, but I wanted to make my husband a small cake for his birthday," says Rebecca Zeissler of Forest Park, Illinois. "So i created this recipe for the occasion, and the cake came out moist, elegant and delicious."
I MAKE this special treat for my family whenever there's a birthday or anniversary. Even without a special occasion, it caps any meal with a festive flair.
I especially like to prepare the brownies in a heart shape for Valentine's Day and garnish them with berries.
