      This cake is fabulous! It falls into the category of one of the few desserts that is better than most chocolate desserts. I cannot say enough about how much my family loves it. It is truly one of the best scratch cake recipes I have ever found and I make it whenever I need a guaranteed-to-be good cake. It also works well as cupcakes, which tend to be better for potlucks. Even my Dad, who does not like cake, will eat this.
