    ms_bold's Note:

    I adopted this recipe. I had prepared it for a holiday function prior to the adoption. The comments from my original review stated, "This dense, rich chocolate cake is intensely moist. It baked perfectly and made a lovely layer cake. I will be using this recipe again for chocolate cake needs." The cake in my photo has Chocolate Buttercream Frosting, between the layers, and is frosted with Chocolate Frosting before being covered with my Chocolate Curls. It was a huge hit, and I have made this cake many, many times since.

      When I asked DH what he would like for desert for Thanksgiving, he told me that if he could have anything he wanted it would be a sour-milk chocolate cake like his mother used to make. After 36 years of marriage, this is the first time he has ever mentioned his mother's cake. This recipe was in answer to a request I posted. The cake was so very easy to make that I was surprised by the result. A lovely dark chocolate color with a very tender, very light and very moist texture. DH's Review: "I feel like a kid again and I feel 10 pounds heavier", this coming after eating 1/2 the cake in 24 hours. Thanks Mean Chef for giving DH a very special holiday gift.

      Not quite as chocolatey as I expected, but a fantastic chocolate cake! Next time I'll throw in some mini choco chips (just me though) My Fiance requested a 1 layer square chocolate cake for his friend's "leaving for a new job" lunch. So I made this in a 13x9, and baked about 40 minutes -perfecto! Frosted with chocolate whipped cream frosting (tastes like ice cream with your cake) He came home and actually used the word "phenomenal"!! His boss tried to steal the left overs and sneak home lol But I managed to get a piece. Used strong coffee for the water - that was my only alteration. For those who said the batter is thin - it's normal. I make several cupcake recipes this consistency. I had no troubles with rising and falling. All went great!

      My nephew said this was the best chocolate cake he every had. This chocolate cake is moist and full of flavor without being overly sugary like a lot of box cake mixes. I have made it several times and it works great as 2 rounds and also as a 13"x9" or 12" round cake. I found that I didn't need to use the parchment paper. It slides out with just cooking spray/flour applied to the pan(s). Thanks for a great recipe!
