I found this recipe today when I was looking for a recipe of a cake me and my husband had at a German resturaunt here in MO that was called Death by Chocolate. The cake we had was about a six layers of decadence,all differnt flavors of chocolate with a deep rich chocolate cooked frosting. And I still haven't found a recipe close.
Anyways just the name of this caught my eye so I figured I would share it. And it does sound very very rich. I might try it for a church pot luck we're having at our church this Sunday.
