Top Review by KerfuffleUponWincle

Made for Help a Camera-less Chef Game #5 (June 2008) ~ This cake has a light chocolate flavor and tastes great, but I feel I overbaked it ~ the top was crusty, making it a little crumbly when sliced ~ next time I will check it at 1 hour and 20 minutes ~ thanks ElaineAnn!
