    Not as hard to make as I thought it would be. A great treat for people who are not very big on chocolate.

    Moist and chocolatey

    Leslie Sawicki from COVENTRY, RI

    This cake was flavorful and moist. My family enjoyed it, but my college age children wanted sweeter frosting!

    I really loved the flavor in this cake. But I switched the sour cream for plain yogurt and it worked great. Nobody knew the difference.

    Fusun Atalay from Greenfield Park, PQ

    I like a plain yellow cake with chocolate icing. This cake, with its marbled chocolate part, is just right for a compromise. The icing is very good and making the the swirls in the batter is fun. Next time I'll try the recipe without adding the chocolate to the cake batter and I might get just what I love.

    Great

    JESSICA IACONETTI from Elmsford, NY

    This was a great recipe that everyone loves. I made the frosting with just melted chocolate chips and that works out great. I would definitely recommend this to someone who loves chocolate.

    Not so Hot

    April from Tyler, TX

    This sounds like an excellent cake. However, I was disappointed upon trying it last weekend. The batter is excellent, and I was looking forward to tasting the finished product. The cake turned out just average and bland-tasting, and the frosting, although good, was not outstanding. For this amount of effort, I want something that will knock me off my feet and make me want to fall off my diet. This was not it.
