I had a tall order to fill after trying several of the other chocolate cake recipes from this site. This was the first one that really wowed me. It's simple, no pudding or chocolate chips, and perfectly textured and moist. I did use hot coffee, mainly because i forgot to cool it in advance, but most of the other recipes use hot, and it was delicious as ever. The key to a good cake is making sure your butter and sugar is creamed well before you add the egg and vanilla. I also lightly beated my egg before adding it to the mix. The batter will be runny, but it ends up brilliant. Say hello to my new basic chocolate cake recipe: not too sweet, but perfectly chocolate-y
UPDATE: I just made these into cupcakes (it made 16) and they only needed about 17 minutes to cook.
