Moist, delicious, deep dark chocolate cake that's so easy, so quick to whip together I thought surely I must have forgotten something! No changes and no criticisms, so this is the only commentary this recipe needs. I made half a recipe in an 8" round pan and frosted it with "Chocolate Butter-Creme Frosting," also from this site. Definitely pleased. Definitely worth repeating.

The cake came out tasting bland. I made another one because it was so simple, this time adding 3/4 tsp. of salt. Add a whole tsp. if you like.The cake came out just right.

I've made this cake over and over and we love it. The key is to add the hot coffee last (I use instant). The batter seems really runny but it comes out great. I use a basic chocolate icing and serve with ice cream. Yummy!
