    This was nice and moist, but it was more like chocolate pudding - which wasn't exactly what I was looking for. The icing turned out more like a glaze, and was overly sweet for my taste as well. It was good because it wasn't overly rich, so although I'd give it 3 stars because the glaze was overpoweringly sweet, I'll give it 4 because the cake itself was nice and moist and baked great at 18 minutes. Next time I don't think I'll use the glaze but serve just as is.
