    conniecooks's Note:

    This is a very rich moist chocolate cake. I have made it many times. It is the last birthday cake my father requested before he passed away in 1999. I think it is a Bakers Chocolate recipe

      Being a self-confessed choc-aholic, I have made this dark, decadantly divine dessert many times. If it's made with chocolate...it's got to be good!

      Wow! This is divinely chocolate! Wonderful! My springform pan was a 10 inch so I multiplied the recipe by 1.25 and it worked out perfectly. I didn't do the garnish because I'm not that great at circles (shhh, I'm not telling anyone it was supposed to have one). Everyone said it was definitely a 5, no questions! Thanks for posting.
