I have made this cake for years and the flavor can't be beat. But mine ALWAYS fall in the middle. Can anyone help me with that? Thanks!

I made this to serve to my daughter who avoids gluten and white sugar. I used non-gluten flour and coconut sugar. It turned out very nice. I frosted it with TOH Glossy Chocolate Frosting recipe , and I used coconut sugar for that also. This cake turned out well with these substitutions. I will make this again.

Excellent cake! It was the best chocolate cake I've ever made. It was so moist and flavorful. We made it 3 times in one week. My family and our guest loved it! I even substitued applesauce for half the oil with not problem! Best cake ever...it is now our go to chocolate cake. I love that all the ingredients are common and simple! My search for an amazing simple chocolate cake recipe is over! YUMMY!
