I made this cake on saturday. And it was DELICIOUS! It's called Chocolate Sybil cake you'll find the recipe in the "Lady and Sons; Just Desserts" [Paula Deen.] I left it in the oven for about 31 minutes. The icing is absolutely delicious. It's got nuts in it, but thats ok it tasted wonderful! So try it! it really is good:)

try adding a shot of expresso to the batter and raspberries on top of the icing immediately after pouring on the icing.  5 star cake
