This is a MARVELLOUS TASTY cake! I made this today for our April Fools party and it was gone in seconds! Luckily, me, the baker, got a few crumbs to munch on, lol;) This is a really really tasty cake. I did use a little milk when preparing the coffee, that's the only addition I made. Also, your right about the icing---spreads beautifully and looks awesome on top! Thanks a hundred and one times for the recipe!!

Beautiful cake! So easy to make and no effort at all. I made this for a work collegue. Staff went back for seconds. They thought the cake had been professionally made. I dusted the top with icing sugar (confectioners sugar) and had a chocolate sauce made with melted milk chocolate buttons and cream. In my oven it took 55 minutes to cook. The cake was cracked on top which gave it character and the reason I chose not to ice it. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I'll be baking this one again.

this was pretty good, however I baked it for the 45 min and the bottom of the bake was a tad hard (not burnt, just a little on the rough side). I used 2 round pans, and the cake rose alot, so i had to even it out, to frost with mean chef's chocolate frosting...i will be posting a pic of it in a few days.

I was looking for a quick and easy to make chocolate cake. This cake is just what I was looking for. It was moist and rich. Everyone loved it. I'll be making this again. Thanks for posting it.

I have made this cake many many times and it is consistently wonderful. Great flavour. This is a great cake for those who adhere to a kosher diet as there is no milk in it and can be served after a meat meal. It's rich enough not to have icing which is how we enjoy it. Highly recommended.

Wow this cake was really great, and awesome taste. I made this and used a peanut butter frosting on top and it was wonderful. I even think this would be great without frosting, just dusted with a little confectioners sugar. Thanks I will be making this often.

Great chocolate cake! Made it today for a friend's birthday and it was very much loved. She said it was the best chocolate cake and my DH thought the same. I think i will make it my default chocolate cake from now on. Had it with chocolate fudge icing hummmmmmmmm. This is so easy quick and inexpensive to make (that's the best part of it) and yet so moist and tasty. I made a half recipe and baked it for 45 minutes in a 8"in square baking dish, it came out very nice. Thanks so much for posting.
