I always make this cake for Thanksgiving it's and all time favorite and requested by everyone when the Thanksgiving menu is planned.

Addictive - simply the best darned cake to make or take anywhere - bar none! I would unhesitatingly put this one up against ANYONE else's chocolate cake & unless they were food snobs, they'd realize this one gives any chocolate cake & frosting a real run for the money. Thanks for posting Laura Leigh, best cake made/tasted in 2010!
