    puppitypup's Note:

    This brownie-cake is so good! The best part is the frosting - very chocolaty but not too sweet. Originally from Esther Shank's Mennonite cookbook, tweaked just a bit by me.

      YUM-MY!! This is quite a tasty cake. The bottom is rich, as is the top and the middle is a nice chocolate cake. Very good, Julie! Made for Potluck Tag Game.

      Delicious!! The kids dove right into it. I did add a dash more cocca, not that much. Plan on making another batch later this week. It was very soft, and chewy.
