Apple Mystery Dessert

Yield: 8 servings

I have stumbled upon this recipe a couple of years ago, and I was astounded of its great tasting sauce, which turned out to be more of an icing, so "yummy". Many think that this dessert falls under the category of cake and others would classify it as pie or a pudding. Let others debate while you diginto slices of the moist dessert, topped with a pat of sweet Cinnamon Hard Sauce.
