Golden Chocolate Cake Recipe

Golden Chocolate Cake Recipe

At our Wisconsin farm, dessert was just as important as the main course. This idea has followed us to California, where I'm still on the lookout for good dessert recipes. This moist cake is a favorite since it's chock-full of fun ingredients like chocolate candy bars, pecans and coconut. -Kay Hansen, Escondido, California
