Super good! The taste is wonderful! I guess it was the brown sugar and chocolate. We enjoyed this cake so much. Thanks for sharing it with us. A keeper for sure!
Hi MizzNezz...well, another one of your winners, they just keep on acomin'...This cake was just yummy, and so moist, i did add in 3/4 tsp baking powder, just to get a bit more of a rise out of it, and added 1/2 cup tiny chocolate chips, baked it in a 13x9-inch pan, topped it off with fudge frosting... it was super yummy...gone almost in one day!......great cake recipe INezz, I will be making this one again. Just keep up all your great work, love your recipes :-)
Very good cake! I've used this recipe for years. I was going to post my recipe when I saw that it was already here. I use dark brown sugar and ice the cake with Chocolate Fudge frosting.
