I'm a big fan of pecans which is why they are included in the cake and the glaze but you could also use walnuts or other nuts in this chocolate fudge cake.
I made this cake for Christmas and it was a hit. On top of that, it was easy to make. I have already filed it away and plan to make it again. - 30 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This cake was wonderful, very chocolatey. The glaze was the best tasting I have used. Usually I make a 2 layer cake & end up throwing half of it away (its just me and my husband). This is the perfect size. I know, who would throw away chocolate? Thanks for the great recipe. Karen - 08 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this cake for a family gathering and everyone loved it! I did not use any pecans or nuts. It still tasted great! I am planning on making it again! Thanks for this recipe!!! - 15 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
