    Very easy to make. Next time - and there will be a next time - I will take the cake out of the oven, poke holes in it, pour the glaze over the cake, wait for it to all soak in, and then take the cake out of the pan. My glaze is like soup all over the cake plate. Boo! It's very delicious, though, so I definitely want to try it again in the future.

    This cake is a sure crowd pleaser. Everyone loved it and it was incredibly moist and simple to make. I saved some effort and decided to forgo the glaze. I used a "fudge" cake mix.

    This is a delicious and moist cake. I have a similar recipe for a rum cake except that this one adds chocolate, which I really like! Very flavorful and a very easy recipe to make. Thanks for sharing.


I live on the coast of Florida, near St. Pete. Great seafood abounds here! Cooking good, family friendly meals is my passion, and my kids are as into it as I am. (My 3 year old cracks a mean egg!) <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
