Okay, so I halved both recipes and made this cake and the Extreme Chocolate Cake in the same day so that I could better compare them. I, like many others, used hot coffee in place of boiling water to amplify the chocolate flavor. Both cakes have good qualities. If you are looking for a cake that is rich, moist, and almost fudgy, go with the Extreme Chocolate Cake. If you prefer cakes that are soft, fluffy, and not as chocolatey or sweet, then this recipe for Dark Chocolate Cake I is for you. I personally liked the Extreme Chocolate Cake better but my boyfriend preferred the Dark Chocolate Cake I hands down. I think I will try to experiment with the two recipes to come up with one that balances the flavor of the Extreme Chocolate Cake with the wonderful texture and stackability of the Dark Chocolate Cake I. Thanks for the recipe Carol!
