      I reduced the sugar a little and only used 1/2 c. of the boiling water. And this is truly one of the best chocolate cakes I've ever made, because it's soooo moist. It's also chocolaty and tender and just about perfect. I used a slightly different frosting so my rating is based on the cake recipe only. I baked the batter in two buttered and floured 9" cake pans for about 30 minutes. I'm keeping this recipe for a long time. It is fabulous!!
