This is just a good, old-fashioned chocolate cake. Medium chocolate, not too dark. Delicious and stick to your fork moist. Lighter in texture with a more open crumb, (NOT the pound cake texture the submitter described), just as a good old-fashioned cake ought to be. Rather than water I substituted brewed coffee (half for me, half for the cake), and buttermilk for the milk and vinegar because I had it on hand to use. I frosted it with my own Chocolate Buttercream, no recipe, just dumped and mixed an egg, powdered sugar, unsweetened cocoa powder, butter, vanilla and heavy cream until it looked right. Not a fancy cake, just a delicious one, the kind Grandma made decades ago.
