This recipe still reminds me of Sunday Dinner when I was a child. It's so delicious and moist, and it's also very easy to make. Of course, my mom's was made from scratch but this is made convenient and easy using a chocolate cake mix...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all cake ingredients in a bowl and beat well. Pour into greased and floured 9x13 inch baking pan. Bake for 35 minutes. Do the toothpick test to make sure it is done.
Mix condensed mix and chocolate syrup in a small bowl. Pour over cake and let it soak in. Refrigerate for several hours. Spread whipped topping over cake and top with chopped pecans.
