This may be my favorite dessert that I've ever made. SO GOOD. Now, when you look at the recipe, you're going to be confused. (I certainly was) First, you're going see the amount of brown sugar and think "I'm supposed to put how much topping on this cake?" (it creates that lovely snickerdoodle swirl in the cake). And then you're going to see that you pour water on top before you bake. I was SUPER skeptical about it, and so was my mom. BUT, it's a magic cake, and somehow, this delicious snickerdoodle sauce is make UNDER the cake. YES, under it. Magic dessert. Serve up a slice with vanilla ice cream (I recommend the Talenti tahitian vanilla), and be happy.
Look at all that magic sauce! And the cake actually stays cakey, and doesn't get soggy! MAGIC.
