    Overton Fam's Note:

    This is an old family recipe and one of our very favorites! I have taken this recipe to many social events and it always gets scarfed up really fast. This makes a very rich, chocolatey cake that can be cut into brownie-like bars. This cake keeps and freezes well. Yummy hot or also tastes great refrigerated.

      Very at ease recipe to prepare, as the ending result was a nice fluffy dessert for us tonight. Did not make any adjustments to this. One to try. Made for Pick-A-Chef 2012.

      Love this! I had it whipped up, baked and frosted in well under an hour! Easy recipe! :) I didn't have pecans on hand, but used walnuts instead. I may even add coconut to the frosting the next time, yum! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Made for My 3 Chefs Fall 08'
