MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 7, 2015

"I had extra "Rich Chocolate Frosting" (also from TOH) after making 2 cakes for friends, so decided to make a small cake to keep. I added 1 tsp salt after noticing there was none in the recipe.

This recipe is very similar to another recipe I love which calls for a little vinegar in it and mixing it with a wooden spoon, so I added 1/2 tsp vinegar."

"I had an unexpected guest spending the night, so wanted to whip up a quick chocolate cake with ingredients on hand. I made this recipe and could not believe how quickly it came together and how delicious it was! Bravo, so glad it made a smaller cake and was gone quickly. Thanks again!"
