i had my doubts preparing this cake- when the batter was done it resembled chocolate ,ilk. i was so tempted to add a cup or 4 of flour, but i held myself back-- this cooked right on time, 35 minutes, (btw that never happens to me) and i let it cool a bit, glazed it, a delicious moist cake. we are enjoying it now while we figure out what to make for dinner, lol. this is a keeper, thanks

OMG was this good, so incredibly moist and tasty. I think it all disappeared within an hour. This is definitely going to become a permanent fixture in our house.

This is really good cake. I will make this often and jazz it up with a different frosting as well. The original frosting is great, your typical buttercreme. Needs a Mocha Frosting or something along those lines. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
