Love this recipe. I've tried other chocolate cakes from this site but this one is by far my FAVORITE. The cake is so moist and delicious with a great texture. In my opinion, it's the perfect chocolate cake. I don't have any of the problems other's have mentioned. I'm sure the problems are not with the recipe but it's that something is being done wrong. Make sure to measure your ingredients correctly. NEVER EVER scoop flour, you have to spoon it into a level measuring cup and level it off. Scooping leads to too much flour in the cake which equals dry, crumbly..ect.. Be sure to level off the baking soda as well..If you taste baking soda in the cake you probably used too much. Cream the butter and sugar WELL. You cannot substitute the buttermilk in this recipe with regular milk UNLESS you add a tbs of lemon juice or white vinegar to it. Beat eggs in one at a time, mixing each one in completely. When alternately adding flour and milk, start and end with the flour. Also, DON'T OVERBAKE.
