A chocolate lovers delight! This is from my Grandmothers recipe collection and is absolutely scrumptious. The cake stays moist because the icing is rich fudge. Prep and cooking times are approximate and includes cooling time.

I'm not sure why more people haven't made this cake, but I just finished making it and it is great! The only change I made was to sub the evaporated milk with 2% milk.

This was excellent! Moist, delicious - everything the recipe promised! I followed the recipe exactly, and as soon as the cake was out of the oven, I made the fudge topping and poured over the cake. This is quite rich so best served with a glass of milk. Yum!
