I have looked for this recipe for a long time,imade it as a teenager in the 60s.thanks so much,i thought it was lost.it is the best cake ever!!!!!!!
Very rich and decadent. I used bittersweet chocolate morsels and reduced the sugar by 1/2 cup. I also used coffee in the glaze instead of water. Excellent! Will add to favorites book to make regularly for the chocolate lovers in the family.
