    This is one of the mandatory Thanksgiving desserts for the Treadway/Poe clan. The cake is a mere platform for the out-of-this-world sauce! (Although the pairing of tart and sublime sweetness is most likely why we all love it so much.)

      Thanks for this as well! You’re right about the sauce–just a vehicle for the ridiculously fun tangy/sweet stuff that goes on top. And when it’s all warm and happy on the plate or in a bowl in front of me, well, I am too. Mmmmm.
