    The Giggle Box's Note:

    This is a gooey and chocolaty dream. It's very moist. It's a great dessert for potlucks, dinner parties, etc. Make sure you get a piece though because it will disappear quickly! I got the recipe from the Southern Living 30 Years of our best cooking book. It's a great cook book!

      I made this and added 1 t coffee and 1 t baking powder and half baking soda as wasn't sure if needed it or not. It was really yummy and my children and I gobbled it up in record time. Please can anyone let me know if it is supposed to have baking powder in???
