Recipe by Kim D.

I found this recipe a few years back in a cookbook called Cucina Deliziosa Cookbook. It is a very moist cake, but not too sweet!

I too found this recipe in the Italian Cookbook mentioned. I have made it by mixing the fudge marble packet into the cake mix as well as swirling it. I like it better all together. It tastes like a chocolate cheesecake. Also, I serve it with fresh berries (frozen would work too) and real whipped cream. I also have reduced the sugar by half which has not affected the outcome.
