      Boy, talk about a chocolate cake! YUMMY! Only change I made to the recipe was substitute a little Kahlua for a portion of the cream . . . Used Guiness beer! Made for ZWT#6

      Excellent cake. Very moist, dense, rich and intensely chocolate. Best made a day or two ahead of serving. I added 1/2 tbsp. of instant espresso to the batter, and subbed 1/4 cup of Kahlua for some of the heavy cream in the glaze. Used a rose shaped bundt pan and it didn't take all the batter. There was about a cup of batter left over, which was enough for a mini bundt cake. Didn't use all the glaze. Delicious with a dollop of whipped cream on the side.

      Very chocolatey and delicious cake! I made it exactly as posted, but didn't use all the glaze. I used Warsteiner beer. Everyone here loved it!
