    Cooking to Perfection's Note:

    This recipe is quick, easy, and GREAT! This cake emerges from the oven like a brownie rippled with dark chocolate pudding. Throw in some nuts or chopped white chocolate if you want to get creative. Great served with freshly whipped cream or by itself!

      2012 Wow, I can't believe it was 2005, my first review. I've continued to use recipe for 7 years and it never disappoints.
