    Sharlene~W's Note:

    Another no-fail made-from-scratch recipe from Sunset. A nice, firm cake that makes two perfectly flat two-inch layers that are not too sweet. A perfect cake for a variety of fillings and frostings. Note: To melt chocolate, break it into small pieces and place in a small microwave-safe bowl; cook in microwave at half power, stirring occasionally, until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. (Watch it closely, stirring occasionally and heat until just melted).

      Pretty good, but for my sister and me we prefer a sweeter cake. We're probably going to use semi-sweet chocolate instead of unsweetened and probably more milk and sour cream to give the cake more moisture. It was a little dry.. but overall a good firm cake. :)

      delicious flavour, good chocolate balance, nice and moist. And surprisingly flat, level layers. I baked it at 325F a bit longer to avoid crowning, but I suspect I could have skipped that step. A new favourite.
