I also used the baking sheet this time instead of the round pans. It was really great. Even more awesome than last time.

I think maybe next time I will compromise and use half/half. It was so good I even went back for a second piece. It was melt in your delicious. We ate it warm. I managed to save dh the two last pieces so he can take to work soon.

This recipe is really great and you will love it.

    Hi Raani!

    This one is exceptional.

    Remember to use real butter at least for the frosting. If you can spare it for the cake part too as this is decadently delicious. This was the cake I named my website after. I named it dangerously Delicious and thought that sums up alot of food here! LOL

    Get butter from costco or smart n final cheaper.

    A co worker of Joe’s has asked me to make it twice for her and offered to pay me for it! The second time I took the money. haha

    I have also made cupcakes out of these. The frosting is thin and wont “poof” so it goes along way. When i make cupcakes I double the cake part and use one frosting for all 48. It breaks down to .10 cents a cupcake.(I don’t use any nuts)

    I get raves about this cake whenever I make it.

    Here is a picture of the chocolate cupcakes but with a different frosting.


    Here is a picture of them with just the frosting in this recipe.
