MY AUNT gave me this recipe and it is a wonderful fall dessert for two or more. It tastes like apple pie, yet is less time consuming to prepare. With the special touch of the butter sauce, it receives raves for taste and a delightful surprise flavor addition.
Our family loves cherries, so this cake is the perfect way to end any meal. The combination of sweet cherries and lemon peel gives the yellow cake a distinctive flavor, and no one can resist the yummy cream cheese topping.

Grandma wrote down the recipe for this inviting cake on a piece of brown paper bag. It's loaded with popular spices, so the aroma while baking is out of this world! The warm sauce makes it moist...and special. Add a dollop of whipped topping for a real treat. —Shirley Joan Helfenbein, Lapeer, Michigan
Every spring when her rhubarb was ready, my mother-in-law chopped it up for this moist cake. If your rhubarb is too tart for the sauce, just add in some strawberries. —Rena McCalment, Sharpsville, Indiana
I found this recipe in a Midwestern cookbook. My friends and family consider it one of their favorite desserts. I like it because it's so easy to make. One delectable slice calls for another!

One bite of this old-fashioned spice cake will start everyone reminiscing. Chock full of raisins and nuts, it tastes extra special drizzled with a rich, buttery sauce. —Linda Stemen, Monroeville, Indiana
