This was a good cake. Very rich and very very chocolaty. Everyone here at work loved it. I think the ONLY thing I will do different next time is to leave out the chocolate chips in the midde. I would recommend this cake anyone and everyone.

This cake was fantastic - it was made for a friends birthday, and was described by some as the best cake in the world! Despite it's very ugly appearance, it was sensational! Perfectly gooey, sweet and naughty! I will be making it again and again! I used reduced fat margarine and recuded fat evaporated milk to try and help things out a little bit.
