Chocolate Cake

Happy Valentine's Day! After reading many posts today, I had to think of a way to join with something that seemed to be in the spirit of the day. Since I haven't been doing any baking lately, I searched my photo file and found just the picture I wanted. A few months back I made a wonderful chocolate cake that was moist, delicious and a little different. I borrowed the recipe from Fanny at http://FOODBEAM.BLOGSPOT.COM. The recipe was in her September Archive. I struggled a bit with the conversions but we did enjoy the end result. The surprise ingredient was Guinness. The recipe makes quite a bit of glaze or sauce and I couldn't stand to waste it--so--I cored 2 MacIntosh Apples, stuffed them with pecans and poured the rich & buttery sauce over the apples. Baked them for about half an hour & they were yummy! Hope everyone enjoys whatever they cook, bake, or eat today.
