Gee (lick slurp smack), I'd really like to type alot about how great this is (lick lick smack), but I'm getting chocolate all over the keyboard (slurp lick lick smack smack). YUUUUUUUM!
This was wonderful! I made it for a birthday. It tasted great even though my oven bakes unevenly (literally, each little cake was off-kilter and they kept slipping off each other until the icing was completely stiffened!) The filling was really rich and wonderful!!! I didn't use the chocolate outer icing, but used this swirly marshmallowy icing that has been in the family for several generations. One other thing I did was to melt some bittersweet chocolate and drizzle it over the top and onto the cake plate. (Seems white chocolate would look nice too!)
Made the perfect birthday cake. And I even sub-ed 4 shots of espresso for some of the water called for...and did it in only 2 layers. My frosting didn't quite reach stiffness, even with my mixer, but I'm pretty sure that was user error, and no one minded anyways. wish we still had some...
Simply the most perfect chocolate cake ever! Definitely worth the time to make again and again.
What a delicious cake. It is not a spongy cake but firm and wonderfully flavorful. I made it as my granddaughter's birthday cake and what an abundance of compliments I got on the taste of the cake. It will definately be put in as one of my favorites.
Very moist! I cooked it in muffin tins for about 18 minutes. Made about 32. Thanks for submitting!
This cake was very rich but good. When eating this you want to take small slices. I loved the filling between the layers the best. It was easy to make and turned out great. Thanks for posting Mirj.
those reviews make me go now to the kitchen to do it. I am looking for the perfect chocolate cake. Let's see if this can make it.
