Buttermilk Chocolate Cake with Fudge Icing
I baked in a bundt pan and did use 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. The cake was moist and yummy! Not too sweet or 'rich', which was what I was looking for. The batter is 'runny'. I thought maybe I didn't put enough flour (my son had distracted me for a minute and I lost count of how much flour I had already scooped in). However, a quick read of the reviews and I read the batter is runny. I made it for someone's birthday at work. Everyone loved it. Only thing I didn't do was beat the frosting with a mixer. And I cooked it on medium instead of letting it boil. For these reasons, my frosting was somewhat grainy (from sugar crystals). Not a super big deal but next time I'll make sure it breaks down. Also, I used buttermilk in the frosting since I didn't have regular milk. YUMMMMMMY!

Old Fashioned Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
I agree this batter is more of an angel food cake. It barely got eaten. Stick to a yellow cake batter for a true pineapple upside down cake. It did get a sugary crust. I would actually give this 2 1/2 stars.

Plain Cake Doughnuts
I followed instructions to the tee. Fairly easy to make. If you are not putting on a glaze, add just a little more sugar.
