    breezermom's Note:

    This is a traditional southern recipe, that gets a little extra chocolatey taste from the glaze that is drizzled over the cake. From Southern Living

      So, so, so GOOD! Everyone loved it. Very rich, moist and chocolatey. This more than satisfied my chocolate craving.

      Decadent is the word for this cake. Very moist and a pure chocolate flavor. I loved that it remained moist even days after making the cake too. It was great warmed a bit too. Definitely a 5 star recipe!

      This was a great and rich cake. Made last week to take to a family dinner and everyone loved it! Not sure if I made too much glaze but there was a lot more to just drizzle on so I put it on like frosting but it was still perfect. I left out the nuts since one the the kids is allergic. Made for 123Hits.
