    Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly. I checked it at 35 minutes but it wasn't quite done, so I baked it a few minutes longer. I didn't use icing, but served it slightly warmed with vanilla ice cream. YUM!  -  16 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I thought this was great - something different then the norm with a lot of different textures and tastes. Our family loved it! We did have to bake it about 7 min longer then listed. Wouldn't change it.  -  04 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a very dense, moist, and chewy cake that almost has the consistency of a brownie. It's delicious! Does need an additional 5-10 minutes to fully bake.  -  10 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
