I originally got this recipe from Kitchen Assistant...but I believe it belonged to Southern Living before that! This is fabulous all year round...but especially around Thanksgiving.

This was nearly perfect! It was delicious and moist--it made a wonderful fall birthday cake. I used a 9x13 glass baking dish, and after 20 minutes it was still liquid in the middle, but after 30, it was almost burned. I served it at a birthday party (for adults), and it was a huge hit, but most people felt that the frosting was a little too sweet. Next time I make it, I'll probably use about 12 ounces of powdered sugar.
