    I read it was a bit dry so I added a but if applesauce. Not dry but kinda tasteless and I even added more sugar sweetener to mask the healthiness from my family. Not chocolatey at all, actually tasted kinda like plastic. If it wasnt for the chocolate frosting I put on it it would have gone straight into garbage. I dont recommend.

    Was a little dry...I cooked for 30 to start with and inserted toothpick which did not come out clean so I left it in the oven for another 5. Next time I will try pulling it out early anyway and see how it turns out. Great chocolaty flavor though!
