    That cake looks dark and delicious! Love the peppermint icing with it! Is the oil missing from the cake recipe? I’d love to try this.

      LimeCake, there’s no peppermint oil in the cake. It’s just a chocolate cake with peppermint frosting. Your blog is very cool! Can’t wait to try the pecan praline recipe.

    Hee hee… I think LimeCake means that the veg oil is not mentioned in the directions for mixing the cake. I am guessing it goes in with the eggs, etc. Whipping this up now for my 14YO son’s BDay cake. Chocolate/mint is his favorite combo. Thanks for the recipe!

      Danabee, oops, you’re right! I corrected the recipe: the vegetable oil goes in with the eggs. Hope your son like the cake!

    Update: Killer cake! Killer frosting! Everyone loved it. This is definitely a keeper. I upped the extract in the frosting to more like 3/4tsp. A very nice sweet frosting to go with the not too sweet cake. I can see making this, without frosting, as just an “everyday” cake. Though I think I will buy a 9 x 3 pan. My 9 x 2 was not quite tall enough. This lovely cake seemed to want something a little taller. Thanks again!

    this is the best chocolate cake EVER. not heavy, not dry, fluffy and moist. Good good stuff. caused the room full of my very loud family to be silent for a few blessed minutes.
