This is a good recipe, the cake has a nice chocolate flavor without being overly sweet. I made this recipe as written, except I replaced one of the cups of boiling water with very hot coffee, to get a richer, darker flavour. Baked in two pans instead of three for a double layer cake, and had no trouble with it coming out of the pan as others have mentioned. I did grease the pans and lined the bottom with greased parchment paper, worked perfectly once the cake had cooled it came right out. It is a very dense cake however, so if you're looking for a light, moist cake this is not your recipe. It's almost like a chocolate pound cake, it is so heavy. 4 stars instead of 5 because it was so dense, not a bad thing just unexpected. I will use this recipe again.
