Clearly I'm the odd one out here but I really didn't care for this cake - it only gets three stars because folks at the part I took it to sought me out to compliment me on the cake/icing (though I am convinced they were just being nice!) My cake sunk in the middle, even after I baked it til the toothpick came out clean and never once moved the oven tray until it was time for it to come out. The cake itself was extremely dense. I used the chocolate cream cheese recipe from this site, as recommended by some, and found that it simply compounded the richness and thickness of the cake. Maybe I'm just not the chocoholic I thought I was!! I will try another recipe before I try this one again (though I'm fully prepared to admit I did something wrong here), as I prefer a still moist but overall spongier, lighter cake. If I made this again I'd suggest a lighter, more whipped or mousse-like icing, perhaps raspberry-flavored, maybe peanut butter. And a tall glass of milk!
