This cake was the most moist cake I have ever made. I made it in two 8 in pans and put a candy bar icing in the middle and chocolate glaze over the top... Amazing!

Very good cake, easy, quick, but really moist and delicious. Highly recommended!

I made this cake for my Granddaughter's birthday. It is easy to make with ingredients most have available. It was fantastic for such different ingredients.

I was looking for something chocolate, easy, and ingredients that I had on hand. This cake is moist and great with or without frosting.
