This chocolate cake is the first chocolate cake I have ever made from scratch. I will NEVER buy boxed again! I used 6 tbs of coco powder in the dry mix instead of baking squares because I didn't have any, so I just added 2 extra tablespoons of butter to the milk and water mix and it turned out wonderful. Also I've never made sour milk before so I took another reviewers advice and put 1 1/2 tsps. of vinegar in the milk but it still was not sour in 5 minutes. I put it in the microwave for 20 seconds and it was seperated and was peeerfect sour milk. Thank you for this recipe. Everyone loved it!

Thhis chocolate cake is excellent. Moist, chocolatey, delicious! I'll never use a box again! But one caveat...do not use spray to grease the pan or the bottom of the cake will stick. I solved this problem by using butter and flour to grease the pan.

i loved this cake. it was super-easy and came out so moist and yummy. why do people even use box mixes?! i used a cream cheese frosting which didn't go that well. next time i will try a whipped cream frosting! i had no problem souring the milk. i just added a bit of vinegar to the milk and waited about 20 min.!!
