      We enjoyed this cake very much. It's easy to toss together, with a good chocolate flavor coming through in the result. Moisture level was good, cakes came out of the pans flawlessly and held up perfectly under a robe of vanilla buttercream frosting. Great basic cake that went whoooosh! Gone!

      This is the same recipe I have in my "New Baking Book" by Better Homes and Gardens. I made it as a birthday cake last night in a Wilton Giant Cupcake pan. This is a very good recipe. I baked it at 325 degrees F for about an hour, and it came out moist and very chocolate-y. I frosted it with Basic Frosting. I tinted half of it green and piped it up the bottom of the "cupcake" to make it look like a cupcake liner. I also decorated the top with jumbo star sprinkles. It was a fun cake, but most important, it was very tasty. :)
