Reviews forFavorite Chocolate Cake
"This recipe is wonderful! I made it last night for a Valentine's treat for my family. It's not to sweet so its great if you want to add frosting, but I like it just the way it is. I did add a little bit of salt, although the recipe doesn't call for any. My mom, who is not a big cake fan, loved it and asked for the recipe. Absolutely a keeper and will be making again. Thanks for the great recipe!!!!"
"this cake is great"
"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."
