Wonderfully moist, rich cake. My only problem with it was my own fault. I decided to modify and use round cake pans to try and make a layer cake, and this cake is too moist to remove from a pan!

An excellent snack cake! Deliciously moist and flavorful! So easy to prepare using only one pan, no mess to clean up! I think I will only use a powdered sugar to top. So flavorful, it needs no icing! Would be great served with a scoop of ice cream! Thanks for this one, Mysterygirl!

What else can I say that hasn't been said above? I put peanut butter icing on top - deeelicious! The only thing I'm thinking now is that I'll make cupcakes out of the batter, and put icing in the middle of those cupcakes....hmmmm! Thanx Mysterygirl

Cake is okay. I found that with all of the buzz floating around about it I was expecting something more. Tasted like a store-bought Betty Crocker cake to me. Didn't stop me from eating it though.

Excellent! As easy as a box mix without the box mix "fake" taste that comes with all those added chemicals. I will make this again for sure! I did add a tsp of instant coffee to the liquids because it is supposed to intensify the chocolate flavor.

I'm lactose intolerant and this recipe was a godsend. I like chocolate cake as much as the next person and this recipe definitely delivered! I'm now using the recipe again to make a birthday cake for my husband. It's so easy to make my girls (3 and 6) can help me. Thanks.

Made it twice, the second time my 9x13 was reserved for a pork chop recipe and I scaled back the quantities to use an 8x8 pan came out even better and with a chocolate frosting my friends went crazy and are asking when I am going to make it again.At first glance the recipe appears a little strange but if you are not adventurous cooking is boring Thanks mystery girl

Aaahhh, the PERFECT answer for nagging chocolate cravings! Thank you Mysterygirl!!! You've given me a wonderful new reason to pile on the pounds... I mean, it's chocolate! Normal people don't say "No!" to that! :-) I halved the recipe because I didn't have enough flour, but it still took 25 minutes to bake in a 6" non-stick square pan. The cake is wonderfully moist and personally I don't think it needs any frosting at all!
