    Shirl in OK's Note:

    We like this cake because it's a dark dense cake with a different texture than most chocolate cakes. Very good served with a dip of vanilla ice cream. I cut this from a magazine and have made it many times.

      This is, hands down, the BEST chocolate cake I have ever tasted or made in my entire life.

      I made two alterations. I used dark chocolate syrup and Hershey's Special Dark chocolate baking cocoa. I was skeptical about no frosting. But the powdered sugar was a perfect touch.

      I do not have a bundt pan so I baked it in a glass 9x13 pan for 1 hour 20 minutes. It is PERFECTION. I wish I would have found this recipe years ago.

      This is from Harrigan's Restaurant in Lubbock Texas and was printed in a Sept. 2003 Good Housekeeping. This disappears faster than any cake I have ever made.

      This is the most amazing chocolate cake ever! The buttermilk and milkyway bars give it a really unique flavor.
