I have made this cake three times in the last two weeks. Family can't get enough and honestly it is SO easy. I add a cup of chocolate chips to the batter.

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.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 had extra "Rich Chocolate Frosting" (also from TOH) after making 2 cakes for friends, so decided to make a small cake to keep. I added 1 tsp salt after noticing there was none in the recipe.This recipe is very similar to another recipe I love which calls for a little vinegar in it and mixing it with a wooden spoon, so I added 1/2 tsp vinegar.
