      WOW!!!!!! I love chocolates and thank you so much for putting such a lovely recipe online that too on the day when I won the SPRING contest here! I'll make this cake when I call my friends over for a party to celebrate today's thrill! Thanks once again.

      DELICIOUS CAKE, NOMNOMNOM!! Anywho, wonderful recipe, I do recommend greasing the pan entirely though! Also the first time I madethis I halved it, not being entirely sure of the amount it would yield. Even if it is only one layer, AMAKE THE WHOLE THING, otherwise you just have a sheet of moist delicious brownies ;) Fantastic recipe!

      This is one of my all time favorite chocolate cake recipes. I have been using the same one for years. The only difference to mine is it has 2 cups of flour in it. Great recipe. :)
