    Oddly, i did not find it to have a dense chocolatey flavor at all. I found the flavor to be subtle, but very pleasant.

    This cake was good, but not nearly as moist as the Moist Chocolate Cake(also on this website). Even though there is chocolate syrup and a chocolate bar in this cake, it doesn't have a very strong chocolate flavor.

    This cake was absolutely delicious! I thought it got moister the longer it got! Loved it!

    This was a pretty simple recipe to make. I used skim milk and had good results and the cake tasted right on. I'd probably recommend adding a frosting to the cake, otherwise it is a little bland. Otherwise, I really liked this cake and plan on making it again.

    I made this cake for a picnic. I wanted something that traveled well in the summer weather and was delicious without glaze or frosting. This cake was perfect! I folded in chocolate chips to make it extra special.

    This is by far the best cake I have ever had in my life. It is so good I can hardly stand it!!! I've been making it since I first saw it in TOH a few years ago. THANK YOU to the the submitter for this recipe!! P.S. Don't be afraid to use a bit more chocolate...I use a couple extra ounces of candy bar since I buy the bigger Cadbury bars.
