"This is the best chocolate cake recipe! I made SIX of these for our daughter's 7th bday party, layered a few and made a 2 butterflies and a lion with the others - it bakes so well everytime! I've made it with an espresso buttercream frosting, a cream cheese frosting, and a regular buttercream - all good combos! Mint cream cheese would be good for Christmas..."

"VERY rich when served with ice cream. I used all purpose flour instead of cake flour, sifted it and used about 2 TBSP less per cup. It turned out great. Got raves from the family."
