Does this come out dry? That is the problem I have had with all my chocolate cakes that are made with butter; which I prefer to use rather than oil.
Yes, this cake is very moist. I too usually use Olive Oil in my cakes. I always receive great reviewed from by clients and family that my cakes are always so moist. However; this cake is just as moist, light and fluffy. Just be carefull not to over bake. I made an 8inx2in cake and used the Wilton baking quide - 30 mins. I believe and it came out perfect. I also used a high end chocolate for this receipe. Hope this helps. :)
Sorry, I baked a 8in x 3in.
Sorry, I baked a 8in x 3 in for 30 min.

Your recipe reads "1 1/2 Tbls (1 1/2) sticks)" unsalted butter. Does it call for 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter or 1 1/2 sticks of butter (which would be 3/4 cup)?
Sorry, that should read 12 tablespoons or 1 1/2 sticks of butter!
INGREDIENT CORRECTION UPDATE!!!!
How many cupcakes does this receipe make?
Does this recipe call for enough batter to make a cake from the "Butterfly Pan?" Also, what type of icing would you use on this for cake decorating? Can't really use chocolate icing due to needing colors for butterfly.
This is the America's Test Kitchen Old-Fashioned Chocolate Cake recipe
Is there a way to correct this recipe in the original posting so that the 12 tablespoons of butter (not 1 1/2 ) and the 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda (not cocoa) read correctly?
