    Recipe from "Chocolate from the Cake Mix Doctor...) by: Anne Byrn. The first time I made this recipe, I only had walnuts and dark brown sugar on hand, but the recipe still turned out great!

      I had some vanilla yogurt that I wanted to use up and found this recipe. I had all the ingredients and made no changes. This cake came out so tender and light. Since it's just my husband and me, I hope I will be successful in freezing part of this cake for another time. Thank you for posting this cake recipe and I'll be making it soon to take for a family function. I know they'll all love it!

      Nom nom nom. Just made this. Had to sub olive oil for veg oil (because the only veg oil I've got I used to fry falafel in and didn't want to make the cake taste bad!) and a bit of plain yoghurt to top up the vanilla yoghurt but it's lovely. I was worried that it would be too flat but it rose unbelievably, and I was a bit worried that there wasn't enough topping but it turned out beautifully. I was also surprised at how well the cake stayed together when I had to flip it out of the tin (was expecting it to break up completely). I also cooked it in one 9 inch square tin, and one load tin, and both are fine.
