Note: You can bake the cake in a silicone bread pan or bake the batter in a small round cake pan too, especially if you want to end up with more cakey-looking triangular slices. Another thing you can do is add some nut butter to the cake, either inside (as a layer) or on top. Peanut Butter would be absolutely delicious.
