Enjoyed it! I was initially looking for a tunnel of fudge cake as per hubby's request. But alas all of those called for nuts in the recipe and that it was necessary...so plan B led me to your recipe. I might leave the cinnamon out next time. I also want to try other cake and pudding combinations.
This was fabulous and so easy! I made it for my daughter's third birthday in a heart shaped pan and everyone loved it. Thank you.
I am so sorry for the low rating, but this was just o.k. for me. Hubby didnt like it at all. Thanks for the recipe.
