Reviews for Favorite Chocolate Cake
"This cake is great.l I used non-gluten flour, and I used coconut sugar instead of white sugar. This cake took the substitutions well. The cake was delicious. The 8-inch square pan is just the right size of us. I made a frosting of butter, peanut butter, vanilla and coconut sugar. If you put coconut sugar through a blender, it will have a consistency like that of confectioners sugar. Everyone loved this cake."

"I made this for my Mom's birthday cake. It turned out absolutely perfect!"
"I make this for my family at least once a month. They love it. And it is so easy, my teenaged girls can make it on their own too."
"This was very moist and delicious. I made a simple frosting to go on top. I even had a hard too please teen who spent the night and had two pieces of it. Will make again."
