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.

This is my go-to chocolate cake. I usually do it in a 9x13 or as cupcakes. Most of the time I make a different frosting or use store-bought frosting. I like this frosting recipe, but it is a little time consuming and I don't have a stand mixer.

Very delicious and moist. I am not a coffee drinker and you really don't taste the coffee.
