We love this cake! It's very easy to throw together, and it's a nice dense serious snack cake. Ours came out almost brownie-like in texture. We weren't big fans of the frosting though and will do something different on top next time, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. But all in all, I have found a new cake recipe that I will continue to use over and over! Great cake! Made for PAC Fall 09.
