While I have not tried this frosting, the recipe for the cake is the same as tasteofhome.com/recipes/moist-chocolate-cake The recipe has never failed to produce a light, moist, chocolatey cake. If buttercream is too rich, try the other recipe which has a cooked flour/milk icing that is lovely.
While I have not used this frosting, the cake recipe is the same as another moist chocolate cake recipe on this site. It is the best recipe and I have never ever had any dryness. I saw this in the magazine in 1993 and have impressed people with it many times. I love the fact that it is from scratch. Great if I don't have a box mix handy!
suprisingly wonderful! If you like a light and not overly sweet cake, this is it! I had my doubts on the frosting, but it turned out perfect!
Finally! A recipe thats better than a box mix. Wonderfully chocolatey and moist. I made it with a peanut butter mousse filling.
Just fantasic!!! very moist and easy to make.
