Our family favorite! This cake is so delicious, everyone I serve it to asks for the recipe! Tip: Slice fairly thin slices since this cake is very rich. Keep in fridge then before serving, put slices in microwave for just 10-20 seconds (until the icing starts to slightly melt but cake is still chunky and just getting gooey in places where it has started melting) and serve with plenty of vanilla icecream. Deliciousness! - 21 Sep 2015
