I thought this cake needs more chocolate and maybe a teaspoon more of vanilla. But the frosting was very good. By the time the middle of the cake was done the sides were really dry.

My son did this for a cooking class project. What a huge disappointment it was. It would not come out of the pan (note: it says to only grease the pan, not flour). It was very crumbly and dry...

The name says it all. This was really the best chocolate cake! The cake turned out perfectly moist and the frosting...absolutely delicious! My dad said it was the best chocolate cake he's taste...

WoW this cake is great! Other users must of done something wrong in recipe. This cake is moist it does taste like a frosted brownie but with a cake like texture.I love it *****

Your family will love this!

My cake turned out awesome! I cant wait to make it again. The frosting was the best!

Hi, Very Good!! Bianca

This was very good! I did not think the overall appearance was very good though. The frosting tasted great, but it looked very thick and was very hard to spread. It was a big hit with my grandpa...

The taste of the cake was good, but it did not come out moist enough.
