My family loved this cake! It was really moist, dense and not sickeningly sweet. I drizzled it with bitter sweet chocolate ganache. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! I've had it printed out and have been wanting to make it for over 2 years. I'm so glad I finally had the chance to make it. It's a keeper.
