This was the very first chocolate cake I have ever baked, and it was fantastic. I baked it for my father's birthday party, and everyone was beyond impressed! It was deeply dark, soft, fluffy, and so delicious that my mom, who usually cannot stand anything with chocolaty flavour, raved about it after finishing a whole piece! I only made a couple of small adjustments to suit my pantry at the time: 1) I had dutch-processed cocoa powder, so I added 2 tablespoons of sugar to the recipe, and 2) as I only owned two 9-inch pans, I divided the batter into two cakes and baked them for 50-55 minutes at 340 degrees F. Once they were cooled, they were topped with some store-bought vanilla frosting, then one was decorated with raspberries along the edge, the other with almond slices. The toppings didn't really matter in terms of the flavour as the cakes themselves tasted far superior than any other cakes that I have ever had, but they sure helped with the looks! Everyone ooh-ed and ah-ed when the cakes entered the dining room.
