"I baked this cake today-actually I'd prepared it before back in 2000! But I wanted to make it again! I adjusted this recipe by adding 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract, and I'd used a chocolate fudge cake mix with pudding in it, omitting the package of pudding called for in the recipe.

I added: 1/8 cup all-purpose flour to the chocolate chips and I'd used the glaze of 3/4 cup EVAPORATED MILK, rather than whipping cream. I used a combination of dark chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chips! I then used a total of 2/3 cup of the glaze for 2 other recipes and the balance for glazing the cake when cooled. I baked 45 to 50 minutes, cooled 10 minutes in pan, ran a knife around edge of cake to loosen. I glazed the cake when it was cooled completely and allowed the cake to chill in my refrigerator to set the glaze. This is a great recipe!"

"I have made this cake for years. It is a hit and I always have the recipe to hand out. The ganache type frosting is amazing and the subtle mocha taste is a wonderful surprise!"
