    You will find this cake rises nicely and has great texture. If you prefer more sweetness, ice it with chocolate icing or add some chocolate chips to the mix.

    I am rating this recipe 5 stars after I have made a change or two. I bake this for weddings every weekend and have never had a complaint, only rave reviews so I guess this recipe speaks for itself. Substitute the baking soda with baking powder and add an additional quarter cup of milk......Best ever!  -  14 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
