A chocolate lovers dream cake, definately not your every day ordinary cake! this cake is rich and can use Milky Way bars in place of the Malted Milk bars.

Took this to work this afternoon - not a crumb left. This cake is very moist and would do well as a dessert cake with some cream and strawberries. This ones a keeper ! Thanks Kittencal
