WOW!! Total indulgence! This is fantastic. We wanted something really sweet so I went looking for a cake. This one turned out to be so easy and it really is delicious! I didn't freeze it before frosting, didn't want to wait that long! But it frosted very easily anyway. The frosting is very light and fluffy, it goes great on the cake. My hubby devoured this! Thanks Charlene, this will be a regular.
Very good cake. I did add about a Tbls. of instant coffee granules to enhance the chocolate. Like Mizz Nezz, I didn't freeze it before frosting and it worked out fine. Thanks for submitting.
First, let me say that the cake part of this recipe was terrific! The perfect contrast for a peanut butter icing. Now the problem...no matter what I did to the icing, it never turned out fluffy. I even threw out the entire first batch of frosting and started over, that's how much I really wanted to get it right. I followed the recipe exactly as printed, but both times, the icing just didn't work out right. It was very sticky and grainy, almost like there was too much sugar. I sure wish I knew what went wrong, because I had several people salivating over the recipe, and I'd love to re-try it.
