I really enjoyed this cake. Mine turned out nicely moist while not too dense. It does appear a very slight bit lower in the center, but it's not an issue at all. Not "sunken" like some have commented. I like that the chocolate called for can be increased per other comments. I like to see people's tweaks...that's what cooking is about. I've always found it interesting the extreme differences of opinion on recipes I guess. I didn't find this too time consuming or hard to make at all. It's not a box mix so it takes more than 3 steps. I typically assume that any radical differences from other outcomes is due to my oven, over-mixing, etc. I would advise trying others' tweaks and get to know your oven, this is a good little cake and honestly I'd rather use this instead of a mix any day. I'm sure the icing could be easily halved, not everyone can stand that same level of sweetness. I sprinkled a pinch of sea salt on top on a still warm serving of my first piece...DEElicious!!
