This is, quite simply, the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted. It has exceptional qualities. First, it tastes silky and dense, yet it is light texture at the same time. I was amazed. Some of the reviews were negative (it tasted to some like an adultered box mix), but to me and my husband, it was sublime. These were the changes I had to make due to my inability to accept the fact that it called for 1 cup of oil:
1) Replace half of the oil with half and half.
2) Replace half a cup of water with dark coffee(the cake will not taste like coffee, but will have a more deeper flavor).
3) I only used 1/2 a cup of chocolate chips and found that to be more than enough.
If you find that your batter is stiff after it has been mixed and will not pour, do not worry, that is how it is supposed to be. Just spread it in the pans with a spatula.
I made this in two teflon coated 9 inch round pans and left it in the oven for 38 minutes.
