Review This Recipe
I found this cake to be a little dry, but still a good cake.
Very good & creamy frosting was loved by all.
this cake is absolutely delicous thankyou so very much for sharing this wounderful recipe with us.
This is an easy cake to make. I sub buttermilk for the milk and add a little extra and it is better than a box cake. The icing is not bad either.
Easy and delicious chocolate cake
I love chocolate, and this cake is not only easy, but delicious too. The frosting is chocolatey, and smooth. I like that there is a choice between baking pan sizes. I'll be baking this one again.
easy chocolate cake
I wanted to try the new chocolatier. The flavor was great, however in this cake I was disappointed as even though I did the toothpick test, 30 minutes of cooling left me with a sunken in middle of a cake that was very chocolatie, good, but not quite right. Thank goodness the frosting turned out awesome and I filled in most of the hole with frosting.
classic chocolate cake with creamy chocolate frost
I made this with chocolatier 53% dark chocolate bar. It was so simple and so easy to make. I do not know how long it will last. But it will be gone by tomorrow afternoon. I made them in a two 9" baking pans. The chocolatier dark chocolate is the best tasting chocolate i have ever tasted.

Classic Chocolate Cake
Very easy and tastes great. Really enjoyed it until I read the amount of fat in the serving size. Wish there was someway besides using 110 of the daily requirement of fat to make a cake that tastes as good as this. I used the chocolatier chocolate. Now that is really great chocolate,
