"I've used this recipe and it's great! I omitted the chopped pecans and used 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips in the cake batter. I also used 2 eggs, 1/3 cup each vegetable oil and cold water, 1 envelope of cappuccino mix, 1/4 cup chocolate syrup, 1 Tbsp. vanilla, 1 package of chocolate pudding mix (instant)-3.9 oz., 1/8 cup all-purpose flour for the cake and baked in a greased and floured 13x9x2" baking pan for 35 to 40 minutes or until cake tester inserted near center comes out clean. I used 1/4 cup of half and half or evaporated milk and used butterscotch ice cream topping if caramel topping isn't available. I kept the confectioner's sugar, cocoa and 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract the same. Thank you, Sherry Thompson, for sharing your recipe!delowenstein"
