This is the reason I joined Recipezaar! I made this last week for my boyfriend's birthday and everyone was just blown away. Wonderful, rich and soooo decadent. Love it!
I finally tried my hand at this recipe last night and omg our whole family loved it! I couldn't find white cake mix so I used Golden vanilla cake mix instead and it was the most delicious.. The cake was not crumbly or too fluffy. It's a good recipe for firm wedding cake, tastes good too.. ;)
Oh yeah! Rich, yummy and delightful for anyone who loves chocolate and coffee! (I used the coffee liquor option instead of rum). I found the frosting almost too rich, DH and ladies at my get- together thought it was perfect! made for fall 2012 PAC
This is an intensely rich cake. I love the sour cream/baking soda trick. The frosting, for me, was too heavy...RICH. Next time I will lighten it up a bit.
I hijacked the rum frosting in this recipe for a zucchini chocolate cake. The frosting is amazing. I used three generous tablespoons at rum, and at first found it overwhelming, but after a few hours the frosting mellowed and it was just perfect. I look forward to an opportunity to try it with this cake as well.
Tis is simply FANTASTIC!
