Very dense cake, but the frosting is yummy!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 2, 2009

This is one of my favorite chocolate cake recipes. The cream cheese (I use regular cream cheese) and whipped cream frosting is fabulous. I use the frosting for other recipes, as well. The cake tastes even better the next day.
