  1. Moist and delicious! No one knew it was a "light" cake. I baked it in a bundt pan (about 50 minutes) and then drizzled it with a little confectioner's sugar, vanilla and milk combination. A huge hit! Thanks for sharing.
  2. This is such a fantastic recipe. I've made this about a half dozen times already. It is moist, delicious, easy to make and extremely versatile. I've made a thin sheet cake using a jelly roll pan. I used a large biscuit cutter and made rounds to make beautiful individual cakes. I used fat free whipped cream for filling and as "icing" and made chocolate covered coffee beans for decoration. I'm making this for Father's Day and will drizzle with dark chocolate for an added touch. This cake is always a huge hit no matter what form it is presented.
  3. This cake was delicious! I made it for my Mother's Birthday and it was a big hit. Very moist and flavorful. I added a tsp. of Vanilla to the recipe and used French Vanilla coffee. I would definitely make this cake again and recommend it to anyone looking for a delectable chocolate cake. Thanks for sharing!
  4. Great recipe to enjoy chocolate cake without all the guilt. To me, the texture gave it away as being healthy, but it didn't stop me from enjoying it with a little scoop of vanilla ice cream. It was super simple and quick to make. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
  5. This was very good! Very moist. I made cupcakes and frosted them with cream cheese frosting. Thanks for posting!
