The classic chocolate cake, moist and delicious, topped with a lovely buttercream icing. Perfect for birthdays.
Used different ingredients. Might just be my oven, but 45 minutes is too much time to cook... probably would have been done by 35. What saved the cake for me was the icing... very good!! A substitution I made that I think helps is using rum instead of the buttermilk. - 18 Jul 2008
I cook professionally and was curious about this cake. The ingredients are complimentary, yet the finished product has an off flavour. I tried this cake on multiple occasions just in case there was something wrong with the ingredients, but the flavour persisted. - 18 Jul 2008
FABULOUS!!! this is by far the BEST chocolate cake I have ever made! Moist, tender, flavourful, rich, yummy - I made a lifelong friend by sending some to a very busy neighbour, too. Wish I could give this recipe 10 stars!!! - 18 Jul 2008
