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 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..
