This is not an overly sweet cake. This is very much a chocolate cake! Delicious!

I love this recipe. The cake is very intensely chocolate but NOT overly sweet. I gave some to my Mom who felt the same way - she said I should make this cake all the time. Even the fudgy drippy icing was great, maybe the next time I'll let it firm up some before putting it up the cake.
