I am not going to lie, I am not a big dessert fan.  I think the evidence is in, since this website is devoted to dead animals, their cooking and the communal art of smoking, brining and bbq and guys.  These attributes do not lend themselves to a dainty affair called baking.  Until you ask yourself, what would a guy truly eat for dessert if he had to?

Well, this is that dessert.  It is moist, and with the spices you will not be wondering where the flavor is.  Guys, you can make this and impress the ladies, and since this recipe is posting around Fathers Day, Ladies – Impress your man and make this phenomenal cake for Fathers Day!
