This cake was so simple to make, that I half believed it wouldn't turn out. Not only, is it easy to make, it is THE most moist, chocolately, flavourful, and not too sweet cake I have ever had. I am the biggest (no pun intended) chocoholic - and this was the PERFECT cake. I always get great comments on my cakes - but people were swarming around me asking for the recipe... THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS!!! =)
