Ladies BEWARE!!! I followed this recipe to the T! I ended up with a oven full of spill over chocolate cake and smoke detectors blaring at midnight. This is the LAST time I get a recipe off line. Use your best judgement!



This cake recipe was awful. The cake was red with brown chunks throughout batter. The cake was chewy and it did not taste like chocolate cake. It tasted like red spotted vanilla cake. Don't waste your time with this recipe.



This was a really good chocolate cake, very moist and delicious. My whole family loved it.
