I tried this recipe this weekend for the grownups to eat at my DDs 2nd bday party (DD had an Elmo cake...and elmo ended up being pink cause I ran out of red, haha icon_biggrin.gif )

ANYHOO...this was a totally different recipe but it was delish!!! The cake is light and moist and the icing makes a fudge-like layer over top of it all. Great with vanilla ice cream or milk! Thought I'd share. It came from recipezaar, I halved the recipe to make a 9x13.
