Trying to be creative in my description of this cake, I asked my husband , "How would you describe this cake"? He says to me ...... "In one word? GONE!" *LOL* This cake is VERY good! I normally don't like homemade cakes... I prefer store mixes... I didn't have a mix on hand and I wanted cake for dessert. I hade every ingredient for this one. (And always do!!) This cake SMELLS SOOOO chocolatey... and the batter is sooooo chocolatey *LOL* It's moist and wonderful!! You could actually get away with NOT using frosting ... maybe a dusting of powdered sugar or something if even that. Thanks for posting this one!!!
