      My husband is sitting here raving about how good tasting this cake is. I was looking for the old fashioned buttermilk and cocoa powder cake. This it delicious. I did add a little bit of cinnamon. That was the only change I made. I will be keeping this recipe to use again and to share with my friends. If you like chocolate cake, try it.

      My daughter and I actually made "The Best Chocolate Cake Recipe Ever" and used the icing from this cake. The icing is about the best we've ever had. The cake has coffee in in and with this icing, the dessert is to die for. We both hope and believe my friends 50th birthday cake will be a hit. My daughter said we should make this cake and sell the slices. Delicios!

      I made this for my father-in-law's birthday (I'm the cake baker for all of the family functions) and followed the directions exactly. There were about 15 of us who ate it, and I think on the whole it was enjoyed by everyone. My husband and I thought this cake was good, but not our absolute favorite. The texture is a bit more dense than we like, and the combination of it with the chocolate cream cheese frosting is VERY rich. If you like a decadent chocolate cake, this is the one for you. As for us, we'll keep searching for a cake with a slightly more tender crumb and lighter texture. I may use the frosting for a batch of yellow cake cupcakes though - the kids especially liked it!
      Thanks for sharing. I always like trying out a new cake recipe.
