Such a delicious recipe. I personally think the batter itself tastes just like oreo cookies. Can be eaten plain, or i'll even warm up a container of store bought cream cheese frosting and glaze it all over. Also can try dusting it with powdered sugar Serve warm or room temp.

Turned out gorgeous! I made this to give away actually to my sisters and they give it 5 stars. It's "extremely moist and chocolatey without being overpowering" is what I was told. I couldn't taste test because of medical issues going on right now. But i feel confident in the fact that the sister who gave it such high lauds is a choco-holical-connoiseur. LOL, does that make sense? This cake is awesome, to say the least. Thank you butterflyness!

A wonderfully flavored moist cake! I drizzled with some warmed chocolate frosting, and it was lovely. Thanks for sharing!

You are so right--the batter IS just like oreos :). I lightened this up a lot--ff cream cheese, egg sub, and 1/3 c oil--and it turned out divine! Moist and fudgy, just as I'd hoped. I'm going to serve the leftovers tomorrow with strawberries and whipped cream--chocolate strawberry shortcake! Thanks for posting!
