Oh, NOM. I made this for a potluck at work, and it got rave reviews. I did make a couple of changes - I used a chocolate cake mix instead of yellow, and I left out the nuts (I work in a pretty large department and didn't know who might have allergy issues). I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa for the glaze. The cake turned out decadent and rich and oh, so good! Thanks for posting!
I am not sure how to rate this because I made a couple of changes. Instead of nutmeg and allspice, I used Chinese 5 Spice Powder. I also mixed a 1/2 cup chocolate chips and a 1/2 cup cinnamon chips. The cinnamon chips melted into the cake, which made it even better. The flavors blended together really well and the cake was mice and moist. Very Tasty!! It was easy to make. I will definitely be making this recipe again and again. I always have cake mixex on hand. Thanks for sharing your recipe Flower7!! It's a keeper
This is awesome! Perfect as it is.
This is a great cake recipe. I wanted to make something different for my husbands birthday & since it is close to Halloween & I just didn't want the usual chocolate cake. This recipe is easy & what a great taste. The only thing is I could not find cinnamon chips,so I dusted them in cinnamon. My family loved this cake & especially the glaze. This really makes the cake. Again what a great recipe & I will be making this often. Dolly K
Fantastic recipe...the cake is rich and moist - pumkiny-yumminess and the spicy icing brings it over the top (I mean over-the top goodness :wink: ) Thanks for a great treat flower7 (my friend from "the pet-swap" :) )!!! Very easy to make...I used a butter cake mix, mini-chocolate chips and I practically minced my pecans...I almost didn't bother to do the glaze because I could tell from batter licking the spice flavors were already fabulous...but I am so glad I did (that topping is a fantastic little recipe by itself, I will be doing that again for any cake - I love spicy chocolate - I was bowl licking that too :)...if you can find the cinnamon chips DO IT!!!) I had marked this a while ago to make for my Hubs. B-Day... but I ended up making it a bit earlier to participate in the Cake-a-Thon in memory of Chef-I- Am...making a good cake is a wonderful way to celebrate life!!! This cake became a special gift on a lot of levels - Thanks again flower7 :)!!
This is wonderful! I took this to a teacher's luncheon and had many requests for the recipe. I couldn't find any cinnamon baking chips so I just dusted the top with confectioner's sugar. It is rich enough without the glaze. Thanks for a great recipe.
