D&D delicious

My husband and his D&D buddys loved it. I made it so they didn't have to keep eating cookies out of a box and it looked ez. It was a huge hit. One guy even showed back up last night asking for more cake! LOL. Thanks for an AWESOME recipe!

Chocolate Cake

Good, but not that great. Our family would like richer taste. Easy to make and better the next day.

That's the comment I received while serving this for dessert at a recent family gathering. In fact, I was asked to make it again that same week. Very moist and flavorful! I did change out the glaze one time and made a chocolate glaze. This is a definite keeper!
