very good and easy to make... i used half as much sugar as called for b/c i read somewhere you can do that if you are trying to cut down on sugar... and it still tastes good... i also put some cinnamon in it b/c i think cocoa and cinnamon go great together. i might make this again.

Ok. So the cake turned out delicious, and it was very easy to make...but unless my oven is failing (it can't be, I baked chicked right after) this cake took almost an hour to fully bake. The middle remained soft, and I had to check it every 10 minutes or so. The cake is a tasty one, but not as quick as it should have been.

The only thing that I changed about this recipe is that I made cupcakes instead of a normal cake. This cake was so easy to make, good for when your in a rush. Although the batter did taste weird at first, after it was in the mixer for 5 minutes it tasted better but when the cupcakes came out they instantly turned flat.

Nothing unusual, different or weird about this recipe, which is just what I wanted. This is a plain and simple, good old fashioned butter-based chocolate cake, an ideal basic and versatile recipe to do with whatever your heart desires. In my case I made Rocky Road Cupcakes with it today. I made a half recipe which yielded 10 cupcakes, filled only about half full as I topped them with chopped walnuts, miniature marshmallows and chocolate chips before baking. Put them out for the landscape crew working in my yard and within a couple of minutes all I had left of them was the photo I posted!

So easy and so delicious! I use whole wheat flour with this recipe. I think the whole wheat gives it a more interesting texture. Either way.. great recipe!

We've now made this twice. It's very easy, moist and delicious, great kids birthday cake. It took us a little longer to cook - more like 40 minutes.

I followed the recipe but only reduced the sugar content. It tasted exactly how i wanted - not too sweet. I baked exactly for 35 mins and the surface is a bit crunchy but soft and moist inside. perfection!
