    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    To avoid and small lumps in the batter make certain to sift your cocoa powder, and using a good-quality cocoa will only improve the flavor, the batter will not work well for cupcakes.

      Yum! This is a really moist and dark chocolate cake that melts in your mouth! I was a little confused on step 6 where it says to add in the water/coffee mixture because there is no water listed in the ingredients, so didn't add any because the batter was very thin at that point anyway and couldn't see where adding water would come into play. It had no ill effects what so ever on the out come as it baked up beautifully. Thanks for a wonderful recipe Kitten that will satisfy anyones "need good chocolate cake" craving! :)
