Thanks! This recipe is so good! The cake turns out so moist, dense (in a good way!) and so chocolate-y, but is still easy and fast to prepare. I served with raspberry sauce and whipped cream and got a ton of compliments.

This is a delicious cake, Carrie! I made it exactly as you directed and it was indeed very rich and decadent. I dusted it with confectioner\'s sugar as you recommended and served with whipped cream. I will look forward to serving this wonderful cake again! Thank you, Carrie!! Bev
