This cake is magical!! I have made it for years and it is always a huge hit at birthdays and pot-luck dessert tables. Easy to mix (though an odd combination of ingredients). Don't be freaked out by how thin and runny the batter seems -- it cooks up into a dense, rich moist cake that you will not believe has only 5 grams of fat per serving. It really doesn't even need icing -- just dust it with confectioners sugar if you like. Do be sure you grease and flour the bundt cake mold well and don't let the cake cool in the pan or it may stick. It does keep well -- that is, if you can keep everyone from gobbling it up the first day!
A tip for a cute birthday or anniversary cake for a guy (or gal) who is into cars: if you have a ribbed bundt pan this very dark battered cake comes out looking like a tire. I've tucked a small bowl or metal lid in the center hole to make a "hub cap" , used dark chocolate frosting to cover it and then drawn white "tread" squiggles with icing around the outside and written the message on the "sidewalls" to look like a tire spec. You can write the special date to look like the tire size code. The first one I made for my car nut boyfriend's birthday said " wasn't it a GOODYEAR babe?" around the rim.
