The first time I made this, I forgot to put in the eggs. Oops. It made a huge mess in my oven and was a crumbly mess in the pan . . .although the crumbs were tasty. I tried this again today and yep, you need the eggs. ;) Much better with them! I did halve the spices and it does taste like devil's food to me. I originally was going to make the frosting but after the debacle with the eggs I gave up, so I can't speak to that, but this is an easy from scratch devil's food cake. Thanks for the recipe!

I followed the directions to a T and it took an hour to bake. I would also suggest using half of the cin and cloves, the spices were to overpowering to be devilsfood cake . Otherwise, tasty.

This is a GREAT tasting cake...however the cloves and cinnamon make it more like a spice cake. The chocolate is virtually undetectable. Not what you want if you're looking for a TRUE devils food cake. Otherwise YUMM!!

Not bad. My husband loves it. I do not have buttermilk available where I live and substituted plain yogurt. It came out really moist. The cinnamon is too strong a flavor and takes away from the chocolatey goodness.
