Recipe by Some Like It Hot

Caramel, Chocolate and Pecan

Top Review by JPsBarbie

Simi and I were craving chocolate the other night and I had everything needed for this cake. We were somewhat disappointed in the frosting, it needed something but we couldn't figure out what. Overall the cake filled the need for chocolate but the family isn't requesting a repeat. (1)
