“I don't remember where I found this recipe. It's a very interesting but moist cake. I think it's fine on its own without frosting. It calls for a large bundt pan, I have a 10 cup so I cut the recipe when I make it, but I'm posting it as it was written. Since I use a smaller pan, it takes about 55 minutes for mine to bake. I also leave out the nuts. It reminds me of a big brownie. I've made it several times and everyone loves it. I use the candy bars by the checkout counter, they should be 1.5 oz and you need 8 of them. They also sell them in a pack--I think they comes 8 to a pack.”
