  1. It was very easy to make. It tasted amazing very good cake. I will make again and again
  2. I made this as part of my contribution to a potluck and our friends absolutely loved it! So delicious. Thanks!
  3. I couldn't beleive tthis cake tasted as wonderful as it looked! I grated semi-sweet choclate over the topping after it set for an hour, then served to my friends on Valentines Day! They LOVED it! Thanks!
  4. I have made this cake twice. It takes 80-90 min to bake, not the 1 hr as stated in recipe. It does not dry out due to longer baking time. Your knife must come out clean for this cake to be done. The longer time I stated is correct as I have baked this in two different ovens and baking time was the same.One was in my gas oven at home, the other was a electric oven while on vacation in my time share condo. Don't be afraid to bake this, oh sooooooo delicious cake! Enjoy
  5. Really delicious--so rich and wonderful! Will make it a lot. Pretty quick and easy! Lots of calories and chosterol however.


  1. This went over reallllyyyy well with my guests. Shortly after I rate this, I will be forwarding the recipe on to various friends that asked for it. The only change was I used a dark chocolate cake instead of the marble, as it was what I had on hand, and also i subbed part of the milk with a 1/4 cup of chambourd because I thought that would add a nice taste to the topping. I also shaved semi-sweet chocolate over the top.
  2. Luscious!!I made it with Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix instead of the Marble and melted good quality chocolate chips with butter and drizzeled on top. It was so good!
