This is a family favorite I found from TOH. It's nice and chocolately and tastes just as well unfrosted as frosted. It also freezes well.

As a died-in-the-wool chocoholic, I can vouch for the fact that this is one great tasting cake ~ Absolutely loved it! The one thing I did not do, however, was to use the powdered sugar in the last step, but other than that, your recipe was followed & very much enjoyed! Definitely a keeper of a recipe!
