This is a very good chocolate cake recipe!

Top Review by Amanda Beth

This was very good. I didn't think the cake frosted itself though. I chose to add some canned frosting after the cake was done. I added nuts and some chocolate chips. My kids loved that they had a spoonful of cake. Thanks for a much-needed chocolate fix!
