    Debber's Note:

    Snowflakes drifting by the frosty windows, but inside we're listening to Christmas carols and decorating cut-out cookies. Dad comes and stomps the snow from his boots. Christmas Saturday, and we're ready for a piece of this special fudgy cake to load up our plates, with a glass of icy milk alongside. COOKING TIME includes chilling the cake. Thanks to Gooseberry Patch for another excellent recipe.

      I made this cake for a family reunion and love the taste and look of it. This cake is very rich so I prefer eating small potions. It's perfect for a special occasion.
