    It was pretty good; what I like about it is how it allows you to be creative. Go out, buy some espresso-infused dark chocolate... or orange-infused... whatever looks good. There's also raspberry, sea salt, chili. Whatever you can find at the store. I did do the orange, and it went off really well.<br/><br/>Update: I tried it with 36 packets of Splenda instead of sugar and sugar-free Hershey's special dark. I also used I Can't Believe It's Not Butter in place of real butter. Believe it or not, I like it better. It's a tad lighter, a tad sweeter, but still dense and brownie-like compared to other cakes. Yum.

    Wow, this was wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly, except for adding a little of Kahlua. Served with Kahlua flavoured cream for a fabulous gluten free dessert. Will certainly be making this again. Thanks for sharing.

    Just gorgeous! Was exactly what I wanted. Very moist and fudgy and very popular. I took the suggestion of an earlier reviewer and made a chocolate ganache to cover. Then served it with a scoop of Raspberry Dream Delight (recipe # 409557) - will be making this again, most definitely. Thank you, Michael!! Tricia in Oz
