I love desserts and chocolate! This cake is so delicious, I have made it several times for pot lucks and other functions. Never a piece left : )

What a cake! It's a moist and soft chocolate cake with a caramelized pecan icing. Pouring the icing over the warm cake makes it irresistible. This should definitely be served warm so the gooey frosting is at optimal gooeyness. Grab a glass of milk and enjoy. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
