Unexpectedly fantastic!!! Light fluffy moist - I could go on & on. I did have to adjust flour to 2 1/8 cups of all purpose. And added just short of 1/4 cup oil in. (The batter does taste and look like chocolate mousse!) The frosting was a wonderful match to this glorious cake. But the best part? Both 4 yr olds got in the action. (He made the cake / She did the frosting) And were pumped that "This is yummier than Mom's cake!" (Yeah my last one was a doozy). Oh yeah: I didn't have three round pans so I whipped up an additional 11 cupcakes... Why 11? We couldn't stop "Taste testing" the batter
Absolutely loved this cake. I'm not in the habit of making triple layer cakes so I had to go out and buy a third pan but it was worth it. It was a very moist and lightly flavored chocolate cake and I can't say enough good things about the frosting. I couldn't imagine what it would end up like. I've never heard a frosting recipe call for this kind of ingredients but it was wonderful! Almost like a chocolate mousse.
This is the best chocolate cake recipe! My whole family loves it! I have made it about 3 times now. When I make it I make 2/3 of the recipe (8 servings) and make it in a 9x13 rectangular pan or a molded pan that I have that looks like a flower. I use light buttermilk and I frost it with canned chocolate frosting because canned frosting has less fat and calories than the homemade kind. It always turns out great and tastes awesome!
What a yummy cake! I was a bit skeptical at first after reading some of the reviews but the cake turned out great for me. I made it for my friend's birthday and everything enjoyed it. The icing tastes to me like melted chocolate ice cream. The cake was moist and beautiful. Give it a go.
This is a great cake! The frosting is similar to chocolate mousse and the cake is soft and spongy (almost too soft and spongy--the cake cracked in a couple places--but it was still delicious). One thing I would caution people about is the amount of sweetness. Next time I will make it I would reduce the amount of sugar by 1/4 maybe 1/2 cup. It's just way too sweet otherwise especially with the use of semi-sweet chocolate. Other than that this is a delicious cake.
I really liked the cake but not the frosting. The recipe wasn't really enough for the whole cake. Also with the chocolate mixture it was too heavy to allow the cream to fluff up well. I used a variation of a whipped cream an cocoa powder instead of melted chocolate chips which worked really well.
