Okay, my DH did not take the cake into work, I took it to work this morning, and don't you know I just had to try a piece!!! It was yummy and yes, it weighs about 8lbs as well! I had a chocolate buttercream over it as well so rich it is. I need a big glass of milk now!
Just be prepared that it is not like other cakes, it is very dense. I would call it a cross between a brownie and a cake.
What a great way to start the day with cake!
