A very good recipe if not overbaked, pay attention. The second one I made was very good and moist.

Very good! This recipe was very easy to make. It had a very moist, fudgy texture and lots of chocolate flavor. Definitely a keeper!

This cake was really surprising! I followed it pretty much to the T and it came out very bland and did not have that chocolate flavor. I think you should add less sugar and A LOT more chocolate....
