The incomparable flavor of pure maple syrup is reason enough to make this sweet treat; that it is also quick to prepare is an added bonus. Maple syrup is marked and graded by its color, ranging from light to dark -- the darker the color, the more intense the flavor. If you can find grade B, use it here for both the batter and the icing.
This fudgy favorite is exceptionally easy to make. Don't forget the rich chocolate glaze!
