About this recipe: A heavenly chocolate cake recipe that is taken to new heights with a luscious fudge frosting. Perfect for birthday cakes. You could also make two 23cm (9 in) round chocolate cakes instead of one large chocolate cake, if desired.
My son did this for a cooking class project. What a huge disappointment it was. It would not come out of the pan (note: it says to only grease the pan, not flour). It was very crumbly and dry. It had to be cooked longer than it said to have the middle done. The frosting was okay, didn't hardly cover the cake. My husband's comment was it seemed to be missing something. I watched my son make this and he didn't leave anything out. I would never make this again. - 04 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I thought this cake needs more chocolate and maybe a teaspoon more of vanilla. But the frosting was very good. By the time the middle of the cake was done the sides were really dry. - 30 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The name says it all. This was really the best chocolate cake! The cake turned out perfectly moist and the frosting...absolutely delicious! My dad said it was the best chocolate cake he's tasted! AND the directions were easy to follow! If you want the best, try this recipe! - 17 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
