Excellent and super moist. Based on other reviews I made a few changes; perhaps these made the recipe a bit healthier, too. I cut the sugar to 1-1/2 cups and the oil to 3/4 cup; I then added 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce to replace the missing oil. I left out the streusal but I might try it next time.The flavor of the orange juice stands out, great for those who like orange and chocolate combined! I had to use a 9 x 13 pan and the cake was cooked in 40 minutes. Everyone enjoyed this with a tasty vanilla frosting; next time I might try chocolate. Thanks Kittencal, I love your recipes!

Another Kittencall success! This is a very moist and chocolaty cake.I baked in a bundt pan.Followed the recipe almost exactly. I use 3 quarter cup leftover coffee and 3 quarter cup water. Baked for 40 minutes , used Chocolate glaze Recipe 250111 as I was out of chocolate chips. This combination will be my recipe for Chocolate Cake now!! Kittencal ,you never let us down.Another great recipe!Thank you! Did not use struesal filling this time ,and I never attempt to bake anything without using your recipe for Pan Release !!

I followed the recipe to a tee and I got a wonderful cake. Very moist, lots of flavor and I doubt if I will have any left over after dinner tonight. This is a recipe I will definitely make again. Thanks for the great recipe.

Okay Kitten . . . I don't know how you do what you do but babe you DO IT! At this point I've actually stopped searching through recipes that aren't yours. This was another EPIC WIN! I didn't have any instant coffee so I did do 3/4 c orange juice and 3/4 c prepared coffee. Other than that I followed the recipe to a tee and was not disappointed. Extremely moist and oh so succulent. Absolutely luscious!

This cake was super easy and overall great (as is any recipe from Kitten!) though for us, there was a bit too much orange flavor with the full 1 1/2 cups of OJ. Next time (and there will be a next time!) I am going to use a bottle of stout instead of the OJ. I "frosted" this with a ganache and will do so again. Thanks!!!

This was a vey good, moist dark chocolate cake, which was just short of "Wow" from DH. Kittencals' Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!) 78579 ensured easy release from the Bundt pan. This cake improved with the addition of frosting, provided from 2Bleu's Chocolate Hazelnut Spread (Mock Nutella from Gale Gand) #328709, and shown in one of my photos. I made the streusel included in the directions, but it was dark and did not offer much visual contrast to the cake's presentation (it sure tasted good, though!). Made for Kittencal's Cook-a-thon.

Made this last night and it turned out soooo good and moist, WOW! I subbed applesauce for the oil ( trying to cut down on fat ) and as I didn't have any Orange juice I used leftover brewed coffee. It was delicious!!!! As suggested I used the Chocolate Glaze for Cakes. Thank you for another great recipe.

I made it, following the recipe to a t -- the cake was very oily without too much flavor. Definitely will not make again.
