I love love love this recipe.. I have used it on several cakes and everyone just can't get enough of it!
I have made this at least half a dozen times and everyone loves it.
This is my go to chocolate cake now. Its tasty, but not overly rich or too sweet. Goes well with a sweet frosting such as buttercream. Dense enough to hold up find under fondant. Moist, delicious, and simple to make.
Super moist and delicious!!! Didn't have quite enough cocoa so I melted some semi sweet morsels in the hot water. Will definately make this again. Everyone loved it!!
