The 'crumb' was off for me personally, from the original version of the cake. I used 1 cup of mini chocolate chips to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the cake. It was drier and less dense, but no one noticed the difference--the cake plate was empty! Glazed it with the "Chocolatey Satin Glaze" from AR.

I DID BOTH VERSIONS AND HAVE DONE THIS ONE TWICE BY ACCIDENT BECAUSE I BOUGHT LOW FAT SOUR CREAM FOR SOMETHING ELSE AND ENDED UP USING IT. I DID THE HALF OIL BECAUSE OF OTHERS SAYING THAT 1 CUP WAS TOO MUCH....AND ITS STILL DELICIOUS. I ASLO USED THE SATINY CHOCOLATE GLAZE FOR THE TOPPING AND ITS SPOT ON. THE RECIPE IS ON THIS SITE AS WELL. IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE TO MAKE IT IN THE MICROWAVE OVEN.

The original is still my preference, but this was still very good and everyone enjoyed it.
