This is the ultimate chocoholics' dream cake:) My aunt once gave me this recipe as "healing medicine" after a heartbreak. It's been a hit in my home ever since, heartbreak or not;) It works well for the holidays (Thanksgiving, Valentine's days, etc...) and freezes well. I've even adapted the recipe to be gluten-free for my neighbor by substituting the flour with rice or corn flour. Hope you enjoy:)
