Was looking through the newest recipes as I wanted a lunch box filler. Loved the sound of this as it was super easy. I used 2 round 9" pans and it took just over 30 minutes. Used a butter icing. Has turned out lovely and moist. Thanks for posting. =)

Awesome! Its main features have to be its simplicity in preparation and its extremely moist chocolittyness!! I added 1/2 cup of Nestlés dark chocolate melts ( the big flat ones)to the mixture just for the effect. I was a bit dubious about making it at first as it had no baking powder in it and I was expecting a heavy cake. But no, I made the buttermilk (information gleaned from the link, as I had never heard of buttermilk. I thought buttermilk was something only found in sun-tan lotion), resisted the urge to pour in half a bottle of Tropical Blend tanning oil as a possible substitute, and went ahead. So glad I did!! It is YUM plus!!

To: Cindy Lynn This cake is absolutely fantastic!!! Big, moist, and just plain tasty! Followed your directions and it turned out super. Very, very easy to put together. Baked it in a 9" x 13" pan and topped it with my favorite chocolate fudge icing. YUMMY! Thanks so much for sharing. Laudee C. Colorado
