This is a very good chocolate cake. I will be making it for the second time. Since it's made with butter it doesn't have that boxed cake mix quality. Moist and not overpowering. Used a chocolate buttercream on top. *I used only 3/4 c water.
I realy enjoyed making this recipe, and its delisious, have fun baking, and you will find out how enjoyable it is baking .
OMG this should be illegal! The best I have ever had!(and, I'm a picky eater!)
I enjoyed the basic cake recipe. I feel it needs a fresh fruit [sliced strawberries or peaches, add 1/2 c of granulated sugar, allow it to sit 30-45 minutes until a juice forms] garnish to emphasize what an excellent cake you have. Standing alone with just a dusting of powdered sugar just doesn't seem to present it as it should be. I do not actually feel it needs an icing but perhaps the topping LOL offers with it's Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread would give it that extra emphasis I feel it requires In a pinch you could whip a 1/2 pint of whipping cream with 1/4 c. granulated sugar, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, and 1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg. Serve each slice topped with a dollop of the seasoned whipped cream..

One of my fondest memories from my childhood was going to my grandparents’ house after school. My grandpa loved to eat (that must be where I get my love of food), and he would always have a snack waiting for me.
