Yummy! I made this on Nov 24th'2001 for my brother's b'day party. Everyone freaked out on it. It's delicious! I garnished it with blanched and chopped almonds and red glaze cherries. Besides that, I cut it into 2 halves in the middle so as to have 2 cakes and then, spread a layer of Lali's Homemade Chocolate Pudding on one cake and covered it with the other. Then, on top of this one, I put some more of her pudding. It was "YUM"! I clicked a snap too so as to remember how much I LOVED this cake. "This is her gift to me", my brother says:)

Mirjam, this recipe is absolutely delicious! Rich, moist and deep dark chocolate! This cake really needs no frosting, it stands on it's own, although my husband loved the icing as well! If you are a true chocolate lover, you must try this wonderful cake! I made it exactly as the recipe called for. Thanks for posting this one, Mirjam. My family truly enjoyed every bite!

This is without a doubt the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted!! I know this is the one I will make from now on!! I loved it and so did everyone else .. the only thing I didnt like was the glaze, I think regular frosting would be better .. thank you Mirjam!

I have this very same recipe in my files for years now and it is the best. When I was scanning through the recipes here, I noticed it again. Now that reminds me to make it again as it has been awhile since I've done it. Very, Very Yummy!

Mirj, this is one unbelievable cake! I made this two weeks ago and took it into work...no one could believe how wonderful a lowfat cake could taste. I cut the slices fairly thin, so we probably got almost twice the servings. We gobbled it up quickly because it was just so incredible. The weird thing is that the cake NEVER lost that wonderful moistness. All of the flavors were right on the money. I used a chocolate & cherry coffee, and the slight hint of the cherry was nice. That's the only thing I did differently. I can't wait to make this with the Green Mountain Spicy Egg Nog coffee for the holidays. Delicious, unusual, and the best chocolate cake I've ever had - thanks, Mirj.

Try this cake with chocolate raspberry icecream. I did and it tasted like heaven. I think this cake might be better as a jellyroll icecream cake (though not low fat).
