Easy and Tasty!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My cake turned out delicious. Everyone loved it and said I can make it again anytime. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cake is very good. I used cake flour instead of regular flour, hot coffee (Starbucks French Roast) in place of the water and butter for the vegetable oil. This cake is good without any icing, but tastes awesome with mint flavored buttercream icing too. item not reviewed by moderator and published

BEST CHOCOLATE CAKE EVER! Very simple recipe with professional results every time! Friends and family always ask for the recipe every time i make it! Delicious, rich, dark chocolate, moist cake that will satisfy every time you bake it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
After reading all the reviews, I thought I would give it a try. I saw that some had trouble and figured that would be me. To my delight, this cake came out perfect. I loved the density, the flavor as did those I shared this cake with. My only concern was the amount of time that it took me to put it all together. I know it was because it was my first time making the cake. I am looking forward to making this cake again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cake was so good! I love baking with simple and inexpensive ingredients while still getting a great result. For those of you who didn't have a good result, maybe your baking powder or baking soda was too old? I also substituted with sunflower oil (because it's what I had in the house at the time and I used 1/4c less sugar and it still turned out great. Will definitely make this again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
