Great recipe! Have made this one several times and it always turns out moist and delicious. The only change I make is to add 1 teaspoonful of cinnamon to the cake batter and I add 1 teaspoonful of instant coffee or espresso powder to the icing. It's also a quick, easy cake to stir up.

This was like chocolate heaven! Very, very good and easy to make. I used a 9x13 in glass pan and it took 32 min for the cake to be completely done. Thanks for sharing!

This is an absolutely wonderful cake. I received the recipe from my co-worker as it is a favorite at work. We bake it in a 9X13" pan but that is the only difference. It is so easy and the cake is moist and stays moist for days. I highly recommend this one for all you chocolate fiends like me.
