my favorite chocolate cake recipe!

This cake is very moist. I especially liked the fact that it isn't as sweet as regular cake. I added a cup of chocolate chips, as one reviewer suggested. Very nice!

this was so easy and good use of leftover potatoes. I wouldn't say mine came out fluffy, more like a cross between a brownie and cake. Next time I make it I will add some semi sweet chocolate chips to add even more chocolate flavor.
