  The recipe for the Choc Mint Cake was copied from the L.A. Times
  years ago from the same article I got my recipe for the Black
  Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffeecake from. The coffeecake is a favorite
  in my house. I thought I'd send the recipe again for people who
  didn't get the recipe the first time I sent it. Both cakes were First
  prize winners at the L. A. County Fair Years ago.
