Top Review by Sydney Mike

Made this recipe to give to a neighbor couple as part of their Thanksgiving dinner (They're not very fond of anything pumpkin, but are chocoholics!) & they really enjoyed it, I think as much for the lightness of the cake as for the chocolate! Will be making this sometime soon just for us, but only after I get my fill of the usual pumpkin/cranberry/mince thingies! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Beverage Tag]
