A Chocolate Syrup Cake

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Junebug

This is a very moist cake and not too sweet. You can make a glaze and drizzle over the top of the cake after it is cool. It will keep stored airtight, at room temperature, for a week.

This turned out great! Delicious, moist and just sweet enough. Using what I had on hand, I substituted instant chocolate pudding mix and it worked really well. I used a glaze made from confectioner's sugar, chocolate syrup and a touch of milk. My husband was delighted and that is always worth 5 stars. Made for the Aussie/Kiwi Recipe Swap - The Kool Koalas. Thanks Junebug!
