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!!!

I just made this and it's a very light cake. It's very good... and so easy to make. I topped it with a dusting of powdered sugar. This is the kind of recipe that will stick in your head and you'll always remember the recipe because it's so easy.

I have used this cake for every Birthday now for well over a year. I guess it is time I say I love it. It is easy to make and always moist. Not too sweet just lovely. I usually use cream cheese icing on it and it is great. I really don't like super sweet cakes so this is great. I always get compliments thanks Mizznezz another great riecpe.

Wonderful is the word to describe this. It is incredibly easy to make and so moist and tasty to eat. I added some drained maraschino cherries just before baking and topped with some sprinkled powdered sugar. This little baby won't be around for long! Thanks.

I was very intrigued by the name of this cake so I gave it a try...let me just say it was fantastic! So very moist, not too sweet and was perfect with cream cheese icing. Next time I will try a caramel or brown sugar icing. Thanks for a new quick, go to dessert!

Made as written, with sprinkled powder sugar on top. Simply didn't care for this.
