Nice recipe - deep, dark chocolate and good and moist. I added 1/2 tsp. salt to make the flavors "come alive." That addition, along with the coffee, ensured a very chocolatey chocolate cake. Baked this as cupcakes, about 20 minutes. I would not hesitate making this again - very pleased.

The BEST chocolate cake, period. We used Caroline's Chocolate Fudge frosting as a topping and it turned out awesome. Next, we'll make this into cupcakes... so rich and delicious. Can't taste the coffee... but whatever it does, it worked! Highly recmmended! UPDATE: We made these into cupcakes... actually used half-recipe, and it made enough for 1 full pan of cupcakes. Cooked for about 15 minutes or so... they came out P-E-R-F-E-C-T. Didn't top them with anything, as they were very rich and delicious as they were. It's so cool to say you made something so good from 'scratch.' Of course the guys at the poker table look at you kinda funny when you tell them that... but that's their issue, not mine.

I make this Chocolate Cake often, and get tons of complements and request for the recipe. I worked in a Bakery for almost 9yrs. and I have to say, I know cakes and this one is awesome!!! Tip- Best baked in a Glass Cake Pan. Make it soon, you'll be glad you did.
