While cake is baking you can prepare the sauce.
In a sauce pan combine the butter, brown sugar, flour and boiling water. Bring to a boil. Boil 1 minute or until thickened. The sauce should be thick like a gravy, not too thick. Remove from heat. Add lemon juice and vanilla.

Cool the cake. Cake can be served warm from the oven or cool. Serve cake with hot sauce. TIP: Mom always made the cake and sauce ahead of time. She stored the sauce in a glass jar in the refrigerator and reheated it when she served the cake.
