The chocolate cake was to die for. I don't even like chocolate cake and I liked this one. I never pick recipes that are not reviewed but I wanted to make a chocolate peanut butter cake and I had not chocolate chips or baking squares so I picked this one just because I had the ingredients. When it came time to add the water I was worried because the batter was so thin but it came out great. The cake did sink a little but with the great flavor I am not complaining. Thanks so much for a great recipe!
