actually I loved it I had to make two substitions: I just used FINE whole wheat flour for flour and used a sugar substitute for the sugar as I am unable to eat sugar and white flour and the recipe came out great. This is the first time I have been able to make a whole wheat cake that looks and tastes like cake instead of a wheat biscuit.

My family proclaimed this, the best chocolate cake ever! Very moist;, the icing makes the cake. I did not have to cook the icing very long. I have made this more than once, When I do not have a lot of butter I use half cup vegtable shortnening. Thank you for this recipe.
