    Crowd Pleaser

    SYLVIA SRADOMSKI from Baden, PA

    I love to bake! Made this cake for one of my co-workers. She was nice enough to share with the rest of our group. They all loved it. I was concerned that the nuts were not anchored to the cake. I,m baking it now. This time I'm adding the nuts to the cake 10 minutes before the cake is done. Then I will add the chips when the cake is done. A very tasty and moist cake.

    didn't bake as pretty as the picture

    AMY Newman from DOUGLAS, AK

    The cake is very moist, but mine didn't bake up nearly as high as the photo - or I should say, it quickly deflated after removing it from the oven. I also had to cook it about 10 minutes longer than the recipe stated.

    Yummy!

    Rene Reed from MISSION VIEJO, CA

    I made this for my husband's birthday cake and everyone loved it. It needed to bake it about 7 minutes longer than the longest time stated. It was a big hit.

    Sour Cream Mocha Cake

    Rosalie Tran from BERKELEY, CA

    The cake was very moist and chocolatey. The coffee flavor was very subtle in the ones that I made. I brought the cake to work and received many compliments for it - I'd definitely bake it again. It's a good recipe for chocolate lovers.

    Delicious! I made this 2 times already, once for my family and once for the ladies in our Bible study group. Everyone loved it. It was very moist almost like a brownie. I will be using it again.

    Marvelous Cake!!!

    Nina B. from

    This is delicious and looks good. I've made it several times already. Once, I had some leftover peanut butter morsels, so I put those on top as well and it even looked and tasted better. It also makes a difference if you toast the nuts before you sprinkle them on top.

    A Chocolate Lover's Cake

    Nina B. from Krapina, Croatia

    I love this bittersweet cake. I made it for some dinner guests and it was a big hit. They had a big meal already and didn't plan on eating a lot of dessert. But, they ended up asking for seconds.

    I did the recipe everyone enjoyed . The only different thing I did was that I did not put not the chocolat chip on the top being that I had just enough to do the recipe.

    This is a moist chocolate cake, that keeps well. I used leftover coffee instead of the water, and this gave the cake a real mocha flavor
