    Brenda.'s Note:

    A rich, decadent cake just like the cakes that my Grandma used to make. So chocolatey, that a little piece will surely satisfy your sweet tooth. Enjoy! Be sure to use only *Unsweetened* Chocolate

      If I could give this 10 stars, I would! ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! and ULTRA moist which just melts in your mouth! I couldn't get hold of unsweetened chocolate so used bitter-sweet chocolate instead. But I not quite sure why the colour of my icing is couple of shades lighter than yours! And because I used bitter-sweet chocolate, I dusted the top with cocoa powder and sprinkled finely grated semi-sweet chocolate. DH's already made 'plans' on when I should be making it again! I had to share it with my neighbours, and soon after his 1st bite, he gave me a BIG hug and said, "this is THE BEST chocolate fudge cake I've ever had, EVER!'.. So I am passing on the BIG hug to you! And a BIG THANK YOU for sharing this WONDERFUL recipe! Goes without saying, I definitely will be making this again!! :)

      Oh, wow! This cake is indeed very moist and light. I prepared it with homemade sour cream ( The cake is delicious served with tea, coffee, chocolate milk, or just plain milk. I didn't try the icing yet (not enough ingredients on hand), but I'm sure it's just as delicious as Aaliyah&Aaron's mum says. Thanks bunches for sharing the recipe with us.
