Not quite what I expected in the texture & weight of the cake, but that's NOT a minus, & the cake was definitely delicious! Of course, I'm a chocoholic, so . . . . Served the first room temperature slices with a bit of frozen vanilla yogurt & some homemade chocolate sauce that I have just sittin' around! Very satisfying! Thanks for sharing it!
