      I found the cake to be to dry and lacking in flavor: which surprised me as I did follow the instruction to a T. I did ice the cake with a butter icing. Don't think I'll make again. Sorry

      I halved this and made a dozen cupcakes. Moist, rich, and chocolatey (I used a good quality cocoa)- they were great on their own AND also great frosted with whipped cream. I didn't cream the butter and sugar as long as recommended - maybe a minute - but still seemed excellent. Added eggs all at once too (maybe with a smaller batch it didn't matter).
