I reviewed this a long time ago but I thought I'd update, since then I've made it probably a dozen times. This is easily the best cake I've ever made, it's great as cupcakes or in cake form. It's SO incredibly moist and chocolatey. I'm always messing with recipes, but this one is so perfect I always make it as is. I get SO many compliments on it. For the people who said it's not super chocolatey, I'm thinking maybe they either cooked it too long (dryness always detracts from taste) or used low-quality cocoa powder. I've made it with regular Hershey's and it's definitely great, but it's noticeably better (as anything would be) with high-quality cocoa (Scharffen Berger is easily available around here and also delicious). I like it best with a nice fluffy peanut butter frosting. Today I'm making it with oreo cream cheese frosting for my mother-in-law's birthday. I will never use another chocolate cake recipe... I can't rave enough about it! Just try it, you'll understand : )
