I followed the recipe except I used 2oz of chocolate and 1oz of white chocolate for the topping. This cake is very lite and moist. Delicious! The chocolate flavor was a little strong for my tast...

Nice cake -- not too sweet, very moist, rich chocolate flavor. I reduced the butter to 3/4 cups and added about 1/3 cup of applesauce, to make it *slightly* healthier :) It worked really well.
