Needs no frosting! This is a great cake! I followed others' advice -- I want to taste chocolate in a chocolate cake, not just sweetness and fatty frosting. I cut the sugar in half to 1 cup. To cut fat, I used unsweetened/natural applesauce to replace half the oil (i.e., 3/4 cup applesauce, 3/4 cup oil). I replaced nuts with chocolate chips, but that was just cuzza the nutty anti-nuts in the fam. I used a bundt pan and baked it for about 30 mins at 350, and then 15 more at 325. Skipped the frosting and just sifted powdered sugar over it for elegance. Looked and tasted sensational. Moist, chocolately, and simple. Bring it to any coffee or tea, or any get-together.
