Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe

The cake reminds me of my grandmother, because it was one of her specialties. I bake it often for family parties, and it always brings back fond memories. The cake is light and airy with a delicious chocolate taste. This recipe is a keeper! —Patricia Kreitz, Richland, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW

I am typically not one to eat chocolate cake, but since it is my mother's favorite I made this recipe for her birthday. I made it exactly as listed and it was amazing! I have never had any type of cake that was so moist. I can't wait to try the recipe for cupcakes!

MY REVIEW

I made this cake for my sister's birthday, and it was excellent! Since I baked it in a pyrex bowl, it took over an hour to bake. I was a little worried since I made it half whole wheat and only put in 1 3/4 c. sugar, but it turned out super moist and yummy! It was fairly dense, but really good! I didn't try the frosting, though.

I made this cake for my mother's birthday and everyone raved about it. It was really moist and the icing was fluffy and tasted like whipped cream. I made it in a 9 x 13 and had to increase the baking time to 43 minutes. I will definitely be making it again. Now my family wants the recipe.

Absolutel;y delicious!!! Very moist, great flavor. I baked it in a 9x13 and only make half of the frosting called for and it was the perfect amount. Will make this again.
