    Denise!'s Note:

    My mother makes this cake for my husband when we go to visit her. He will eat two or three pieces of this over the course of the evening! It is very rich and moist. Simple to make.

      Wonderful stuff! This is the birthday cake I made for myself this year, and it was fantastic. I used a Pilsbury Devil's Food mix, and lite Cool Whip, and it couldn't have been easier. My aunt and mom agreed on the 5 star rating. This one's a keeper. Thanks bunches Denise!

      Awesome results! I had to make this cake over the weekend because I just couldn't get the recipe out of my head. I made it expecting to eat a piece or two and then I would take the rest to work because my husband isn't too much of a chocolate fan and I didn't want to eat the whole thing by myself. Well, needless to say...I can't take the cake to work because my husband and I have been eating the cake all weekend and there is only about half of it left. I figure I'll just pass out the recipe to my co-workers and tell everyone about it :) Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

      We LOVED this recipe. Has made it to the "keepers". I was a little concerned about how sweet the dessert might be however, to my surprise the ingredients all worked together very well. This cake is nothing but addictive.
