This is a heavy cake, but it's chocolate-y. Although, I supposed if you like super sweet, heavy chocolate-y-ness, it won't work well for you. I did add about a cup of semi sweet chocolate chips to the batter and used more like 7 tbs of cocoa powder as a concession to the negative reviews, but I think it would've been fine without them as well. It is rather heavy and dense. I made cupcakes and in my normal metal cupcake pans, 20 mins at 350 was perfect. For my ceramic pan, it took closer to 30 minutes. As others have said, this is similar to a German Chocolate Cake recipe. I frosted with the Peanut Butter and Banana Frosting from this site, minus the bananas. thanks for the recipe!
