This is the first dessert I've made from the recipe book, have your cake and vegan too by Kris Holechek. I bought the book in August and just today got around to picking a recipe and trying it out.
It is very tasty as is, but if I make it again I will test it before the called for 38 minutes, as I think it is slightly over-baked. I might also remove the walnuts and double up the semi-sweet chocolate chips. I mistakenly bought mini-chips but using them was easier than chopping regular size chips. I reserved some of the chocolate syrup to pour over the first few slices. I poked the heck out of the cake, but it just didn't absorb it very well. It has a lovely texture, color, and aroma. Hard to go wrong with chocolate, right?
